The beer: Summer Love Ale from Victory Brewing Company
Can you believe that this Summer is half over? Where did the time go? What seems really odd is that we haven’t even been busy this summer. So in order to celebrate the mid-summer slump let’s pair these fresh tacos with this perfect fruity compliment to the bite of the buffalo sauce and the jalapeno in the pico de gallo.
What movie pairs well with chicken tacos topped with buffalo ranch and Pico de gallo?
For tonight’s movie, I recommend ‘How It Ends’. I am a big fan of post-apocalyptic movies and this one was right up my alley. Check out Netflix to find this title. So now on to these buffalo ranch chicken tacos!
How to make Buffalo Ranch Chicken Tacos:
Start by cutting each chicken breast in half to thin these out a bit. Then cover with plastic wrap and use a mallet to beat the chicken down to about 1/2″ thick.
Heat the oil in a pan then sprinkle the creole seasoning over each side of the chicken. Place the chicken into the pan and cook each side 4-6 minutes. Placing the seasoning on the chicken make it look almost ‘blackened‘.
Once the chicken has cooked all the way through remove from the pan and cube.
How to make an easy Pico De Gallo:
You can hand chop all the vegetables and then mix them with the lime, cilantro, and cumin or you can save so much time by using a food processor. It does make it a little watery from the tomatoes so what I do it strain in a mesh strainer over a bowl. Saves so much time and tastes just as delicious.
How to make Buffalo Ranch Sauce:
In a bowl combine the buffalo sauce and ranch dressing. This sauce is the key to making this chicken taco recipe the BEST!
For the flour tortillas, I love to cook them over the open flame on my stove. You can, of course, skip this step if you like and just cover 8 tortillas with a warm, wet paper towel and microwave for 25 seconds.
Now fill the shells with chicken, cheese, pico de gallo then drizzle with buffalo ranch sauce.
Serve with Double Batch Smashed Beans and here you are…..

Upgrade game day with these Walking Chili Cheese Tacos. Packaged chips make the perfect plate for chili, cheese, meat, and toppings. These walking tacos are a great idea for tailgates or parties.
With football season we usually spend mornings at my son’s games then the afternoons back at home watching the big games. Now I don’t watch but I do get my ‘Game On’ making food that I know my boys will love to snack on while they watch. They love the classics: burgers, wings and tacos. This week I’m making walking chili cheese tacos.
The great thing about these walking chili cheese tacos is that you can hit the store and grab a variety of chips for the base. While I went for the traditional nacho chip for most of them I did pick up few surprise bags special for my 11-year-old, spicy fries.
When we lived in town I knew he was getting older when a bunch of boys set off on their own to go to the convenience store up the road and pick out their own snack and pay with their own money. Inevitably they would come back with one kind or another of these fries and with fingers as orange as the sun. Since moving to the new house he doesn’t get to walk to the store anymore so I figured I would pick them up and make his walking chili cheese tacos with them.
How to make Walking Chili Cheese Tacos:
Start with browning the beef. To the meat add cumin, chili powder and garlic power. Cook until completely browned then drain the excess fat from the pan.
Add to a bowl and then you are ready for the chili cheese sauce. In a bowl add the one can of chili with beans and 1/2 cup Colby Jack cheese. Place a paper towel or two over the top of the bowl then microwave for 3 minutes. Stir to combine and that is it for the chili cheese.
For the bags, I cut a vertical slit down the middle then a slit horizontally to the top and bottom then opened it up.
Right on the top add the chili cheese then the meat. Chop up some lettuce, tomatoes, onions into small pieces.
Tips for serving Walking Chili Cheese Tacos:
- Set out some sour cream or guacamole and some more cheese of course.
- Go ahead and set this up bar style so that everyone can make their own and add what they like.
And here you are….
