We love ranch in our family. Especially my boys. Everything gets dipped in ranch! I have a recipe for ranch tacos and I wanted to try to make ranch enchiladas. Ummm it was safe to say my experiment turned out amazing!! My hubby said these are the best and even heated some up again before going to bed. The flavor combination of the ranch and salsa was delicious and the ranch drizzled on top was perfect! I was so happy with how these turned out and our family loved them!Ranch chicken enchiladas on a white plate with rice on the side.

Servings: 6 Servings


  • 3-4 Chicken Breasts boneless skinless
  • 1 package chicken taco seasoning
  • 1 package ranch dry salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup bottled ranch
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 1 package white flour tortillas


  • Cook and shred the chicken. I cooked mine in the slow cooker with the ranch packet and taco seasoning packages in the chicken broth. The chicken just peeled apart. I cooked it on low for about 3-4 hours.
  • Mix the ½ cup of ranch and ½ salsa in a bowl. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and spread a very thin layer of the mixture on the bottom.
  • Start assembling the enchiladas by putting 2 Tbs of the ranch and salsa mixture on the bottom of tortilla. Then put the shredded chicken on top of that. Sprinkle with cheese and roll it up.
  • Line up the enchiladas in the 9x13 pan and sprinkle heavily with the cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and enchiladas are heated through.
  • Drizzle the top with ranch and enjoy!

    This recipe was fantastic! My family loved it so much. I did take a bite without ranch, then with the ranch on top, and I ultimately decided to dip them in sour cream, however they were great all 3 ways! I made the chicken how you suggested (in the crockpot) and oh my—I think I just found a new chicken taco recipe!! It was so good, thank you as always 🙂

  2. This looks amazing! Has anyone tried making it in the instant pot? If so, what steps did you take for the chicken?

  3. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us. Instead of using chicken meat, I had a whole lot of leftover Thanksgiving turkey meat that no one was willing to eat, so when I saw this recipe, and I decided to give it a try. I must say it was absolutely delicious. Anyone that likes ranch will like this recipe. This is a must keep recipe!

  4. Made this last night and it was amazing! This will definitely be made again and again. Loved that is was very easy to prepare.

  5. These are soooo good! I found this recipe a while back through Pinterest, and now it’s one of my favorites! Would it be okay if I put your recipe on my blog? I’d give credit and link over to your website. I love love love your site! So many recipes, so little time 😉

  6. These look amazing and I can’t wait to try them. Have you posted your Spanish Rice recipe yet? I would love to make them both!

  7. These are in the oven right now. I did half corn and half flour tortillas. I did the chicken in the crock pot. I couldn’t keep my kids out of the chicken! Hopefully they like the finished product

  8. I made these tonight and they were a little dry for my taste. I will try a previous commenter’s idea of extra salsa/ranch mixture to pour over the top, because they had a very good flavor, my family liked them, and were so easy. I also cooked extra chicken in the crockpot which I plan to use for ranch chicken wraps for lunch. Thanks for the great recipe. Definitely a keeper.
