Great twist on tacos! This was very fast and easy to prepare, a great bonus for a quick meal. I used homemade taco seasoning and peppercorn ranch, which gave a nice extra kick. The green onion was a nice touch to the usual lettuce/tomato topping. The ranch adds a really nice flavor to this. Thanks for sharing!

Delicious and quick. I was almost afraid of the ranch but it was amazing!!

These tacos are so very good. I loved the addition of creaminess coming from the ranch instead of the usual sour cream. The only bad thing about making this recipe is that the results disappeared so quickly! Everyone loved it here, thanks so much.
