I have been having so much trouble with camera, phone, internet and I just can not get it together to post this deliclus recipe. I am sorry! This delicous recipe should help a bit. I know if you try it you will not be disappointed!

Sitting down and eating dinner together as a family is a high priority to me. Not only do I want my family to eat healthy whole food meals instead of fast food, but I want our family dinner time to be a meaningful place we can come together and talk and even use the time to teach and train our children. Some nights are harder than others because of daily routines. This recipe helps me be able to feed my family something delicious and healthy in less time. It even is great for picky eaters!

With this month has going by terribly fast I have used this meal multiple times. Every day and week has been extra busy and these ranch tacos have become my favorite go to meal. This recipe is great because you can put it together fast in the morning and have juicy, full of flavor chicken tacos for dinner in a snap. It is a fun twist to normal tacos ( which we like too ). I add some white beans for protein and it helps it go farther too.  so maybe when you know you dont  have a lot of time right before dinner maybe you should give These ranch chicken and bean tacos a try.
