This recipe was very popular a few years ago on Pinterest. It’s definitely become one of my go to recipes when I know it is going to be a long day at work and want something easy for dinner!

These Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken Tacos are ridiculously easy and sure to become your go-to lifesaver dinner! The chicken turns out super moist and flavorful every time.

Before serving shred the chicken, serve it on a tortilla with all your favorite toppings! For my tacos, I add a Cilantro Lime sauce and fresh Pico de Gallo, I included the recipes for each!
