I’ve got another super easy and super delish dinner idea for you today. These honey lime salsa verde ranch chicken tacos (phew! that’s a mouthful of a title πŸ™‚ ) were actually a happy accident. You see, I had intended to make these tacos but then as I was already in the process of stirring it all together I realized I had no taco seasoning! I could have made my HOMEMADE TACO SEASONING but I was under a time crunch because I was supposed to have already left to get my daughter from preschool.

I saw this HOMEMADE RANCH SEASONING MIX sitting in my spice cupboard and I thought that it would be tasty. So I added it and darted out the door to make it to preschool pick-up on time.

And let me tell you, they were dee-licious! So creamy, and flavorful and it pairs perfectly with all the fresh veggies. The recipe calls for salsa verde or tomatillo salsa, which is a green salsa and they’re not spicy. On it’s own, it has a small flavor kick but when paired with the creamy sour cream and sweet honey its perfection.

I served these in those new tortilla taco boats. Have you seen them? I love using them, especially with kids, because all the toppings + chicken stay inside the little boat and kids seem to like “eating from a boat” πŸ™‚

You could also crunchy corn taco shells, small flour tortillas, or I’ve even seen some crunchy corn shells that are flat. All this cool stuff.

Don’t forget the shredded lettuce, cheese, diced tomato, and avocado. You really don’t need the sour cream because the chicken is already so creamy, but it certainly would not hurt these by adding more πŸ™‚

Honey Lime Salsa Verde Ranch Chicken Tacos

I always find the salsa verde or the tomatillo salsa by the jarred salsa. The salsa verde will have more of a kick to it and the tomatillo salsa is more mild. I've always used the tomatillo salsa when I make this. They're essentially the same thing so just pick your favorite.
