Delicious Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken Tacos with Salsa, Tortillas & Onions

I love tacos and could eat them several times per week. This is an easy recipe, a ranch chicken wrapped in soft flour tortillas and topped with red onion and cabbage slaw, cilantro, and creamy ranch dressing! 

First some Tips:

For a creamier chicken filling, stir ¼ cup ranch dressing into slow cooker after shredding chicken.

For a spicier chicken filling, add ½-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper to chicken along with taco and ranch seasonings.

By the way, do you know what is the difference between a sandwich and the Taco?

For one thing the meat usually comes thinly sliced in a sandwich and in a taco it is usually chunks or shredded. For the veggies, well, I suppose those can be the same whether it’s on bread or in a tortilla. But the sauces! I think that’s the real kicker. The sauces and flavor variety that goes into a taco is often a lot different than what you would have in a sandwich. And I suppose I favor the taco flavors.

Today, I’m switching things up with our taco fillings and especially the sauce. I’m 100% on board with any kind of taco topped with salsa (I heart salsa forevah) but we’re gonna set aside that jar of On the Border for a second and think creamy, white RANCH.

Sound crazy? It is. Crazy DELICIOUS.
