I created this meal after making the BBQ Chicken Salad with Black Bean Salsa from Jamielyn Nye at I Heart Naptime. She created the Salsa recipe, so I’m not in anyway taking credit for it, but after having her BBQ Chicken Salad for dinner one night, I had the bean salsa leftover the next day – and it made for the perfect tacos!

I quickly whipped up a new recipe with her salsa, and with the homemade Cilantro Ranch Dressing as a drizzle on the tacos, they were delicious!  My kind of meal!
