In my house, my kids will eat anything if it has Ranch dressing on it. I would just grab whatever was on the dressing aisle and they would dip their chicken, potatoes, etc into it and enjoy it.

I have also always loved Ranch dressing. It really adds a ton of flavor to anything I add to it. Last week I received a fun package in the mail with 3 jars of  Litehouse Homestyle Ranch Dressing and some mix in ideas to turn my Ranch dressing into a delicious dip.

Litehouse Homestyle Ranch Dressing is a versatile base that can be mixed with anything from sriracha to bacon & cheddar cheese to create dips that pair perfectly with crackers, fresh-cut vegetables and more.

Since I lived in Mexico for many years I wanted to make some chicken taquitos with some kicked up Ranch! In Mexico they serve taquitos with creama, lettuce, and queso fresco. And then they top it with some salsa. Combining the flavors of Ranch dressing and traditional salsa ingredients – I made a new flavor that we are going to enjoy on more than just taquitos.

It’s also perfect for dipping vegetable and chip! If you are looking for a special flavor to bring to a New Years Party – this is it! It’s so easy and delicious! It will take 5 minutes to make this dip.

Chicken Taquitos

  • 12 corn tortillas (See note below)
  • 1 pound of chicken breasts (cooked and shredded)
  • oil for frying
  • lettuce
  • Chipotle and Jalapeño Ranch Dipping Sauce
  • Queso Fresco

Instructions:

Tortilla note – If you purchase corn tortillas from the grocery store, they are more stiff than fresh corn tortillas that you would buy at a Mexican grocery store. To make them easier to roll into a taquito, you need to first put them into a small frying pan and heat them up for just a few seconds on each side. This will make them easier to bend.

Get a dish with sides (like a 9×13 pan) and add a few paper towels. Set this aside and use it later to add the taquitos once they are cooked. It will help soak up any extra oil and keep them crispy.

In a deep sauce pan, add enough oil to cover about 1/2 in deep. Heat over medium high heat.

Add some shredded chicken to the taco. Don’t place it exactly in the middle – add it just a little to one side. Also don’t add too much chicken because the tortilla will be too fat and break.

Using tongs, pick up the taquito and place it seam side down in the oil. Hold it for a few seconds for it to fry and stay in place. Once it becomes a golden brown you can flip it over. They should be done after about 1 minute – depending on how hot the oil is. Remove it from the oil and place them on the paper towels.

Repeat the process until you run out of chicken.

Now to enjoy the taquitos! You can either dip them into the Chipotle Ranch & Jalapeño Ranch Dipping Sauce or you can place them on a plate and cover with the dipping sauce, lettuce, and queso fresco!
