Southwest Chicken Tacos (On The Border Style)

So I set out to recreate one of my favorite recipes from On The Border! Their Southwest Chicken Tacos are Amazing and I wanted to try to make something similar! Here is what I did:

Southwest Chicken Tacos

1 onion cut into thin rings (or use french onion crisps)
1/2 cup black beans
1/2 bag frozen grilled chicken chunks
1 cup shredded Mexican Cheese
1/4 cup Ranch Dressing
1/2 packet taco seasoning
2 tbsp BBQ Sauce
2 tbsps panko crumbs
10 pack Tortillas

I sautéed the onion in a little olive oil and then added a tbsp of BBQ Sauce, toss in the panko crumbs. Then I added in the frozen pre cooked chicken chunks, I think I used Tyson Brand.  Mixed those with the onion and let it all kinda caramelize together.  Then I took the Tortillas, put the chicken/onion mixture in the tortilla, mixed the black beans, topped with cheese and pour ranch mixture on top! To make Ranch cream mixture: mix Ranch dressing, taco seasoning and 1 tbsp of BBQ sauce together.  Then I heated this all in the microwave until the cheese melted... real classy huh? You could put it in the oven but It didn't need that! 30 secs in the microwave got it ready to serve! Yum!
