Ingredients

Tacos

  • 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons ranch seasoning & salad dressing mix

    Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with foil.

  • 4
    Place bowls on cookie sheet. Divide chicken mixture evenly among boats. Top with shredded cheese.
  • 5
    Bake about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bowls are lightly toasted. Top with crumbled bacon, chopped tomatoes, red onion and cilantro.

    In small bowl, mix Chipotle Ranch Dressing ingredients. Drizzle over tacos just before serving.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Swap Cheddar cheese for Monterey Jack cheese, and top finished tacos with crumbled queso fresco.
  • tip 2
    Add a handful of canned (drained) black beans to the cooked chicken mixture just before dividing it among the taco boats for added flavor and filling.
