Chicken Ranch Tacos

This recipe is amazing!  My whole family LOVES it and we have made it weekly since I found it on Pinterest.  It is easy to put in the crockpot early in the day which makes for a quick fix dinner.

4 chicken breasts
1 pkt. taco seasoning
1 pkt. ranch seasoning
1 cup water or chicken broth
Taco shells
Ranch dressing

Spray crockpot with Pam for easy cleanup.  Add chicken breasts, water or broth, taco and ranch seasoning.  Turn crockpot onto low for 6-8hrs or high for 4-6 hrs.  In the last 1/2 hr of cooktime shred chicken with a fork and add about 1/4 cup ranch dressing and stir.

Serve in taco shells.  I like to put the meat on first, then cheese so it will get melty then a squirt of ranch and salsa topped with shredded lettuce and diced tomato.

The link for the original recipe is found HERE.  I've adapted it slightly to my own liking:)

Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Chex

General Mills has released another gluten free flavor.  My girls are thrilled to have yet another choice when it comes to breakfast cereal.  They really like the flavor of the Apple Cinnamon Chex.  I have only found them at Winco so far but I am sure they will be in other stores soon too.
