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…..
