Chicken-Bacon-Ranch Roll ups
I wish I had some great story behind this recipe, but really I don't. I needed something quick to set on the table last night and this is what sort of came to mind. I don't think anyone was complaining though.
I'm going to state right off the bat, these are not exactly healthy. They're also not something I would normally serve my family on a daily basis, but they're really good and once in a while it's okay to indulge. I figure we serve plenty of veggies and fruit on the side to round out the meal anyways.
Baked chicken, crumbled bacon, cheese, ranch and bell pepper all rolled into a tortilla shell; really what's not to love about this? While they did make for a quick, light dinner, I would also serve these for lunch or even a hearty after school snack for the kids. Salsa was the perfect dipping sauce but additional ranch would also be great.
Chicken-Bacon-Ranch Roll Ups
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded/diced
4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup ranch dressing
diced bell pepper
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8 tortilla shells
In a bowl add shredded or diced chicken, crumbled bacon, ranch dressing, diced bell pepper and cheese. Stir to combine. Divide chicken mixture among tortilla shells evenly, spread down the middle and roll each shell up. Place seam side down onto a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
Serve warm with salsa or additional ranch dressing. Feel free to add in your favorite veggies to the mixture!
