Buffalo Chicken Tacos

I found this recipe on the back of a package of Mission Whole Wheat Tortillas and modified it a bit. My family really loved it. It was quick and healthy.

6 whole wheat tortillas, warmed
1/2 package taco seasoning
2 Tbsp. canola oil
3/4 cup water
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch chunks
1 avocado
1/2 cup ranch dressing, prepared
Hot sauce, to taste
2 oz. blue cheese, crumbled (I didn't use this)
3/4 cup carrots, shredded
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
romaine lettuce, chopped

Combine taco seasoning, oil and 1/4 cup water to make marinade. Add chicken.

In small bowl, mash avocado into small chunks and mix with ranch dressing until smooth.

Remove chicken from marinade and cook in a saute pan until cooked through.

Build tacos with chicken, carrots, cilantro, lettuce, and the avocado ranch dressing.
