EASY Baked Fiesta Ranch Chicken Tacos piled with refried beans, fiestalicious Slow Cooker Mexican Cream Cheese Chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, and Tomatillo Avocado Ranch is a heavenly symphony of flavors and textures in every bite! The dump and run chicken is made in advance making assembly a snap!
Did you grow up on Baked Tacos in the crispy shell? The ground beef variety were a staple at our house along with Chicken Divan, Sloppy Joes and Whipped Potatoes with Sauce. My mom always kept a few packages of hard shells on hand for quick, easy dinners – the kind that come together so quickly you actually feel somewhat guilty but should just feel smart instead because everyone loooooooves Baked Tacos night!
These Baked Tacos could be stuffed with all sorts of meat fillings from my Mexican Chicken to Salsa Verde Honey Lime Chicken to Carnitas, to Sweet Chipotle Pork and even my Burrito Filling would actually be crazy good, but for these tacos, I chose my AH-mazing Slow Cooker Fiesta Ranch Cream Cheese Chicken! Its creamy, packed with spices and the tang of ranch. Think Mexican Ranch Chicken and think DE-licicous!
To make these easy Tacos, you first make your Fiesta Ranch Chicken in the slow cooker which only requires adding ingredients and stirring – sooooo easy. You could even make this chicken a day/days ahead of time and keep it on hand for when you are ready to make these tacos – just reheat before assembling. To make, line up your taco shells in a 9×13 casserole dish – I use the Stand N’Stuff Taco Shells which are super convenient and such an improvement over the traditional ones that I always tried to keep upright as a kid. Layer your shells with creamy refried beans….
Stuff with can’t-stop-eating Fiesta Ranch Chicken…
Top with lots of cheeeeeeese…
Bake for 15 minutes while you prep your favorite toppings…
Pile with lettuce, tomatoes and any of your favorite toppings from avocados to cilantro to hot sauce…
And marry it all together with something creamy, either sour cream, ranch or I like to use my reader’s favorite (and mine!) 5 Minute Blender Tomatillo Avocado Ranch.
This Tomatillo Avocado Ranch makes absolutely everything better. It tastes like creamy, velvety avocado ranch with a Mexican fiesta flair added by the avocado, tomatillo, jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, lime and smoked paprika. Layers of herbs, layers of spice, layers of luscious goodness that just make these Fiesta Ranch Chicken Tacos that much more obsessive worthy.
These Fiesta Ranch Chicken Tacos have it all – from the crunchy shell, to the creamy beans, to the tender, flavor exploding chicken, to the fresh lettuce and tomatoes and the velvety tangy Tomatillo Ranch. And with one bite they will have your heart…
