Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup mild cayenne pepper sauce (such as Frank‚Äôs Red Hot Sauce, not Tabasco sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon corn oil
  • 2 cups (about 10 ounces) diced cooked chicken breast
  • 4 (8 inch) tortillas, warmed if desired
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) finely shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup finely chopped lettuce
  • 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons light ranch dressing Directions

Directions

  1. Put cayenne pepper sauce and oil in a large zip-top bag. Add cooked chicken, seal bag, and shake to coat chicken well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow chicken to marinate.
  2. Pour chicken and sauce in a microwave-safe dish, cover, and heat 2 minutes or until hot (or pour chicken and marinade in a pan and warm on the stove over medium heat).
  3. Lay 4 flour tortillas on the counter. Spoon 1/4 of chicken in the center of each one. Drizzle with the warm marinade if you want to. Top each with 1/4 of the cheese and 1/4 of the lettuce. Drizzle each with 1/4 of the dressing.
  4. Fold each taco in half, or roll it up. Slice in half if you want to.
