Ranch Shredded Chicken Tacos

Happy May!!!  Cinco de Mayo is this Thursday.  What kind of yummy stuff do you have planned for dinner?  If you need some help, I have a bunch of really really good Mexican recipes in my Recipe Index.  Or, you can always skip that and just make these tacos.  I used my go-to 4-Ingredient Mexican Shredded Chicken for these tacos and loaded them with cheese, salsa, cilantro and ranch!!!!  Wow, great decision, because the flavor of these will make your eyes roll to the back of your head and you'll be saying . . . mmm mmm mmm.

The chicken is so tender and juicy and the texture combination mixed with the crunchy taco shells and creamy ranch is like a perfect party in your mouth.  You will love these.  Serve with guacamole and rice.
