Fried Chicken Tacos with Buttermilk Jalapeño Sauce

Fried-Chicken-Tacos-with-Buttermilk-Jalapeno-Sauce

If you are looking for a super simple recipe to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, then you have come to the right place.  These tacos start with store-bought fried chicken fingers (or restaurant bought in my case, I went by Zaxby’s).  I  mixed up a packet of Ranch dressing mix for my dressing then combined everything in the food processor for a quick and tasty dressing.  This recipe is a Southern Living recipe, and they suggest that this dressing is also a great dip for wings.  Add more jalapeño for more heat or reduce the amount for less.  This is a great weeknight dinner that you can have on the table in very little time!
