Spicy Chicken and Ranch Tacos

Taco’s are such an easy meal to throw together in a hurry. I usually cook several boneless, skinless chicken breast at a time and freeze them for later use. With the chicken already cooked, these can be ready in a pinch. The chicken is a healthy alternative to traditional beef taco’s. Can be made with soft flour tortilla’s as well.
