The temperature is dropping, and it’s beginning to look more and more like a Christmas card landscape out there — time to break out the crockpot! There is nothing better than coming home to the delicious smell of dinner cooking, even though you spent the day running errands or working. And that is exactly what I walked into yesterday!
Hidden Valley has these amazing dressings that are not just for salad anymore! They were kind enough to send me 3 of their Ranch varieties: Ranch, Cheesy Ranch, and Spicy Ranch. They asked if I could come up with a new gluten-free dinner recipe, and I believe I did it!
Now I don’t know about you, but when the Christmas season comes along, the last thing you really want to do is spend forever making dinner every night. There are just far too many other things to do. I always fall back on our family favourites, and one of those is tacos. We’ve always had beef tacos before, but this time I thought we’d switch it up and try chicken tacos, using the dressing from Hidden Valley. It was very much an experiment, but I think it turned out really well! These tacos are bursting with flavour, and so good with mushrooms and tomatoes. You’ll want to keep a napkin handy though, because like most tacos, these are messy!
And because we used corn tortillas, these tacos are completely gluten-free, making this a perfect recipe for everyone. It’s perfect for post-tobogganing parties, holiday pot lucks, or for coming home to after a long day of Christmas shopping!
