This recipe for chicken ranch tacos is grilled chicken with bacon, homemade ranch sauce, cheese and fresh vegetables, all stuffed inside warm flour tortillas. A family friendly meal that’s simple to make and fun to eat!
My family is a little bit taco obsessed, if dinner is served inside a tortillas they’re likely to eat it. These chicken ranch tacos combine some of our favorite flavors to make a fun and easy dinner – it’s almost like a chicken club sandwich in taco form! Best of all, you can prepare almost all of the components in advance, and then when it’s dinner time it’ll only take minutes to assemble everything. Or you can put out all the ingredients for a fun taco bar and let your family make their own creations.
How do you make chicken ranch tacos?
These chicken tacos start with bite sized pieces of chicken – you can use leftover chicken, rotisserie chicken, or grilled chicken like I did here. Lately I’ve been grilling up a big batch of chicken at the beginning of the week, it’s been super convenient to have on hand for lunch salads or dinners like these tacos. The chicken is layered in tortillas with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese and homemade ranch sauce. I like to use my homemade ranch powder to flavor the sauce, but store bought ranch powder will work just as well. You can also just use a bottle of ranch dressing if you’re pressed for time!
While clearly there’s nothing Mexican about these chicken tacos, they’re a fun way to serve up some familiar (and family friendly!) flavors. Here’s a step by step video showing you how to assemble them!

How can I make the ranch sauce?
You mix together sour cream with ranch seasoning, the specific proportions are in the recipe! And you can either use a packet of ranch powder from the store or make your own: https://www.dinneratthezoo.com/homemade-ranch-dip/
Made these tacos last night for my family, and set all the ingredients out in bowls for everyone to make their own. My son started putting his (light) ranch dressing on the tortilla, so he would have a “bit of ranch in every bite” and we all had to follow. Loved them!! And super easy to make!
I also am a taco and ranch fan!
I’m with you–I’ll wrap just about anything in a tortilla for a great meal! And I just so happen to have a leftover grilled chicken breast in my fridge from last night’s dinner…I see lunch in my future!
