Grilled Chicken Tacos with Jalapeno Ranch Sauce

Chicken Tacos with Jalapeno Ranch Sauce #recipe

I’ve partnered with  my friends at Hidden Valley Ranch to create a few recipes. I don’t think my kids have ever been so excited about a partnership. I kid not, to them, Ranch is a food group. For my first two recipes I created SOUTH WESTERN RANCH CHICKEN SALAD and CRISPY HONEY RANCH WINGS . Which you promptly made and loved right? This month we’ve taken the taco road. Grilled Chicken Soft Tacos with Jalapeno Ranch Sauce. Another recipe you’re going to need a few extra napkins for. Messy meals seems to be a theme with me lately.

To make this recipe even simpler, you can use leftover chicken. It’s a good thing that you and your family will like. If you like your sauce more on the mild side just cut back on the jalapeno, want to go for the spice gusto? More power to ya, add  more. Remember it’s your kitchen…have fun! Which means if you want cheese, add it. Want more complex jalapeno flavor? Try roasting it first.

    Paula: These tacos look so delicious!!! Since hubby and granddaughter have to be lactose free, do you think it could be done is an olive oil vinegerette dressing instead of a milk based dressing??
