slow cooker ranch chicken tacos... 4 hours and 15 minutes

the goods:

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup water
1 packet taco seasoning
1 packet ranch seasoning
8 taco-sized flour tortillas
ranch dressing, for serving
1 bag southwest chopped salad, prepared (I used Fresh Selection from Kroger, but I think Dole makes one too), cole slaw also works just fine
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
shredded cheese, diced avocado, and diced tomato, for serving

Place chicken breasts in a slow cooker. Pour in the water, then sprinkle with taco seasoning and ranch seasoning. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours. Use a slotted spoon to transfer chicken to a bowl, shred with 2 forks, then return to slow cooker and stir.
When ready to serve, fill tortillas with chicken, cheese, salad or slaw, tomatoes, avocado, drizzle of ranch, and sprinkle with cilantro.
