Flatbread Tacos w/ Ranch Cream Sauce

We love tacos but they do tend to get a little boring after a while, so when I was browsing my new Taste of Home Cookbook and saw this recipe, I just knew we had to give it a try.

It is delicious and the fact that it uses buttermilk biscuits for the shells is not only convenient but you will be amazed at just how good it tastes.

My kids gave it two thumbs up, hubby hasn't tried them yet, he will tonight and I'll let you know tomorrow what the verdict is. :)
