Easy + Delicious Buffalo Chicken Tacos
I think it’s pretty safe to say that the new year always brings about resolutions to eat healthier and get in shape.
Dan and I both made it a goal to get a little bit more in shape, and naturally that comes with eating healthier. However, due to budgetary (and sanity) reasons, I hate being really strict about our diet. I try to cook often, and I try to make sure that I’m using real ingredients, but we eat carbs and we’re not into counting calories.
All that to say- I have no clue how healthy these tacos are! But they’re delicious and made with real food. If you’re super concerned about making them as healthy as possible, you can easily substitute whole wheat tortillas. You can also use plain avocado instead of the dressing. I usually already have the majority of ingredients on hand, as well, so it’s a pretty cheap dinner for us that gives us lots of leftovers!
You can also make this pretty simply! There’s a good recipe for homemade avocado ranch dressing, but that was really time consuming for me with my kiddos. I just use half an avocado and blend it with some good ole bottled ranch. I did make the buffalo sauce using this recipe, mainly because I already had ingredients on hand. You can also just buy buffalo sauce to save time on that step, as well. That’s really what I love about this recipe! It can be modified based on your available time and customized to your tastes!
Last thing! My favorite way to make this is by putting a chicken in the crockpot first thing in the morning. BUT there was a sale on chicken breast last week, so I just cooked about two pounds of chicken (way more than I needed) and diced it up. Do what works best for your time needs!
Hope you enjoy, and if you’re looking for another easy weeknight recipe, make sure to try my chicken bulgogi recipe!
This “recipe” is so easy y’all, but I love that it’s completely customizable based on what your family likes! I strongly encourage the red onion and the avocado ranch, though- the flavors are so amazing! If you try it, let me know how you like it!
Have a phenomenal day!
