Chicken Chipotle Kale Wraps & Tacos

Chicken-Chipotle-Kale-Wrap-Herdez-Traditional- Chipotle-Dia Del Nino-Kale-Hampton Creek-Mayo-Recipe-HealthyAs you all know I strive to make healthy meals at home. But let’s be honest here, sometimes it’s time consuming to make an elaborate breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday, right? Well, to that I say, let your slow cooker and Herdez® cooking sauces do all the work for you!

My family loves when I make chicken chipotle avocado kale wraps. Uhum – this is one way I sneak in the Lacinato Kale and no one even notices the healthy green veggie. The wraps are ultra healthy, delicious and could be made just as an appetizer as well. We’re big on tortillas too so we like using our left overs and making tacos out of them. Perfect for a next day quick lunch or even dinner. So here’s the recipe. Enjoy!

Slow Cooked Chipotle Chicken Avocado Kale Wraps & Tacos (Gluten-free)

Ingredients

3 Organic Avocados

½ cup cubed organic tomato

1/4 cup sliced red onion

1 Meyer’s lemon

2 Jars of Herdez® Traditional Chipotle (So good!)

4-5 lbs Organic Chicken Thigh Fillets (skinless)

Organic Corn Tortillas

1 cup shredded organic Lacinato kale (click here to find out more about all the benefits of this delicious green)

1 bunch of organic Lacinato kale leafs washed and removed from stems

2 cups of water

1/2 tablespoon salt

Directions

Wash chicken thigh fillets and place into slow cooker along with the tomato, salt, water and Herdez® Traditional Chipotle sauce. Cook on low heat overnight (min 6 hrs). Place sliced red onion and lemon juice into a container. Cover with a zip lock bag to avoid a strong smell in refrigerator. Leave overnight.

Once the chicken is ready, let it cool down, remove it from the slow cooker and shred. Add shredded chicken and the Herdez Chipotle sauce with juices from slow cooker into a medium size pan and set on medium setting. Spread a tsp of Hampton Creek chipotle mayo down the middle of each individual kale leaf. Then add slow cooked chicken chipotle, a slice of avocado and top with red onions. Done and Done! Delicious!

For the organic corn tacos version:

Simply spread a tsp of Hampton Creek chipotle mayo down the center of each individual tortilla. Then add a couple tablespoons of the slow cooked Herdez® chicken chipotle, a few slices of avocado and top with shredded Lacinato kale and red onions.

Note: I add one cup of water per one jar of Herdez® Traditional Chipotle sauce (1:1) to the slow cooker so that the chipotle sauce is mild and not spicy for our little one. It gives it the perfect flavor for the entire family to enjoy.

  • #ad I must confess, I’ve always wondered if Mia actually eats her hummus and veggies at school. Every time I ask her if she eats it all she always replies with a quick “yes mom.” And today I have evidence that she actually does love eating her @sabra hummus at school - I suspect the hummus helps get her to finish those veggies! 😉Swipe to see the cute drawings Mia made of her favorite animal and her favorite school snack. Side note, I just realized she’s pretty good at drawing too! Find these convenient Snack to School singles @target in the deli section. #lunchboxconfessions #SabraSingles #SabraPartner
  • Please READ!! Yesterday I cried UGLY. 😭 And when I say ugly I mean full on snot and puddles of water. You get the picture. Let me explain why. .
.
For 6 years, I’ve worked behind a computer and on my phone. My small home office plastered with motivational quotes, vision boards and goals that felt so unattainable. 6  years of hard work, pouring endless hours, late nights, tears and tons of love into my little blog. Followed by rounds of No’s and doors closing in on me. The thoughts of just throwing in the towel and giving up always crept in. But I’m here to tell you even with all of that, I pushed through. Heck I’m still pushing through. But yesterday, two moms that follow me (you know who are☺️) sent me the sweetest messages (I kid you not around the same time) thanking me for all the advice I gave them over the past year and that they are going to be working with their DREAM brand!!! I was so humbled to think I could actually make a huge impact like this on another mom! My heart is so full! ❤️ And then, guess what happened? That dream brand that was plastered on MY vision boards for 6 yrs sent me an email to work with them!! Never in my wildest dreams would I think they would pay me to create content for them but it’s happening! Moral of the story, (promise this isn’t in any way me trying to toot my own horn) just a reminder to NEVER ever give up on that goal even if it seems too far fetched or unattainable! You got this! I’m cheering for you mama! 👏Thank YOU for reading and sending love. And to my village that has always had my back, wouldn’t be here without you. Ok, off to celebrate in my pjs. 😆 Now tell me, if you could work with ANY brand in the entire world who would that be? Or if you’re wanting your own brand what would that be? #KindnessAlwaysWins #WomenEmpoweringWomen #ItTakesAVillage #staymotivated #momblogger
  • #ad If you've been following us for a while now you know that we love how durable and cloth-like @vivatowels Signature Cloth are. They’re perfect for cleaning tough dried on messes, like stove top grime and sticky juice. We were super excited to find the Viva Pop-Ups now that we’re back in school, too. They're the same great Signature Cloth but in a super convenient portable pop-up box. The best part is that one paper towel is dispensed at a time which makes them perfect to grab and use around the house. Especially now with the girls tracking messes in from extracurricular activities! Check them out at the link in my bio! #VivaCleanLikeCloth https://izea.it/aw7D2YC  #morningview #momlife

  • 🏰 What's your favorite childhood memory? 🎡 ¿Cuál es tu recuerdo favorito de tu niñez?

For me, it was going to @Disneyland once a year with my family. I remember my parents saving up for our one-day trip for an entire year. I remember getting to the park right before they opened the doors and staying until midnight. Yet, somehow I don't recall being tired at all. I just remember all the fun times we had. This is exactly how I hope my little ones remember their childhood. ☺️🏰
P.S. Flashing back to exactly one year ago because my first born will be turning 8 next week! Cue in all the ugly crying. Followed by feeling grateful our babies are healthy and overly excited at the fact that we have something magical ✨ up our sleeves! Stay tuned!
