Quick & Easy Chicken Ranch Taco Boats
Football season has begun and that means game day feasting is about to get hot! I love easy to eat appetizers and meals that pack a savory punch, but don’t require too much effort. I am all about football snacks that can be made in minutes verses some that take forever. Call me spoiled, or one who love instant gratification, but when you have multiple roles to fill in a day you can appreciate simplicity. The folks at Old El Paso get my mentality and have some awesome porducts for your game day meals and snacks!
Some salad mix, cherry tomatoes, peppers, onions, and ranch dressing were also bought. I typically chop up my onions and peppers for the week and store them in glass containers in the fridge that way meals like these can be possible in minutes.
How to make Chicken Ranch Taco Boats:
- 1 lb of boneless chicken diced into small pieces
- 1 Old El Paso Flour Taco Boats Kit
- ½ cup of Rainbow Peppers diced
- ⅓ cup of red onion diced
- Ranch dressing
- ½ cup of Mexican Sprinkle Cheese
- ½ cup halved cherry tomatoes.
- Pan fry the chicken with the taco spices
- On a baking sheet, assemble the taco boats. I only use the baking sheet because I can fit all the boats on it easily or serving. These shells do not require additional heating in the oven, but can be warmed in the microwave.
- Lettuce goes first, chicken, peppers, tomato, onion, and then cheese
- Drizzle each with some ranch dressing
- Enjoy! These do not have to be eaten hot and are actually good at room temperature so perfect for game days!
A perk about this recipe is that they do not need to be eaten piping hot, so they make a great game day meal or appetizer option.
We also made some Refried Bean Tacos which were simple, but super tasty. I am admittedly not one to enjoy ground beef tacos, and love that the Old El Paso Refried Beans make a great substitute.
I add a scoop of beans to each taco, some red onion, a little pepper chunks, a sprinkle of cheese, and baked them in a casserole dish for 6 mins at 350- so GOOD!
