Buffalo Chicken Tacos

I think anything in a corn tortilla is delicious... I LOVE tacos. After making my Barbecue Chicken the other day, I had quite a bit of leftover chicken that I needed to use up. So I thought,  'why not make a taco?' I love Buffalo Chicken wings and thought I would make something with that flavor and put in a taco shell... this was easy and YUMMO! It has the spiciness of Buffalo Chicken wings and the flavor of the Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing all rolled into one corn tortilla. Enjoy!

Buffalo Chicken Tacos
3 to 4 cups diced cooked chicken (more or less depending on how many tacos you want to make)
2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup Frank's Hot Sauce (or you can use your favorite brand)

1 small package coleslaw mix
Ranch or Bleu Cheese dressing
grated cheese for garnishing (I used a grated Colby Jack)
Corn Tortillas

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet over medium heat melt the butter. Once the butter is melted stir in the hot sauce and then add the cooked chicken; cook and sir until the chicken is heated through and evenly coated with the sauce. (If using 4 cups of chicken you may want to add another Tablespoon of butter and a couple of Tablespoons more hot sauce. You want the chicken to be well coated.)
While the chicken is warming up, place the coleslaw in a medium size bowl and add a couple of squirts of the dressing. Stir to evenly coat, add a little more dressing is necessary, you want the cabbage coated with dressing but not dripping. Set this aside until ready to eat.
Spray the corn tortillas on each side with Spray Pam, then lay on oven rack in a single layer. Bake for 1 minute, then flip over and bake for 1 minute more. Remove from oven and put in tortilla warmer or a towel lined casserole dish with a lid, until ready to eat. Don't cook any longer or they'll get too hard, and they will be hard to chew.
To assemble the tacos, take one warmed tortilla, place a heaping spoonful of the chicken down the center, next sprinkle on some grated cheese, then add a spoonful of the coleslaw, fold in half and Enjoy!!
Serve with steamed veggies, or Mexican rice and beans!
