How to make homemade taco shells:

  1. 1. Fill the bottom of a frying pan with a thin layer of vegetable oil and warm it up on low heat. We used about 1/2 cup for our size frying pan seen in the video. Caution: use only low heat to prevent the hot oil from splattering.
  2. 2. Using the tongs, lay the uncooked tortilla half into the oil, grabbing the cooked portion and continuing to create a taco shell shape.
  3. 3. Once both sides are golden, place them on some stacked paper towels and let them cool.
  4. 4. Using tongs, lay 1/2 of a corn tortilla in the oil creating a bend like a taco shell. Hold it in place and let it cook until golden.

Recipe for BBQ Ranch Chicken Tacos:

  1. 1. Marinate the uncooked chicken breasts in BBQ sauce.
  2. 2. BBQ as usual (about 15–20 minutes on medium heat), adding additional BBQ sauce as desired. Let the chicken "rest" or cool for a few moments.
  3. 3. Cut the BBQ chicken into slices.
  4. 4. Begin layering your tacos! BBQ chicken at the bottom, then 1/2 tablespoon of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and shredded cheese.
