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

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.

  • Hair Tip 💇🏻🙌🏼👇
.
.
Use essential oils to create your own hair serum. 😉
.
Nature’s Truth® oils which are 100% Pure Plant Based, Paraben Free and Gluten Free are my go-to. I mix a drop of their sweet almond and coconut oils together and place it midway to the ends of my hair. It gives my hair that extra shine and helps tame those pesky fly aways. .
.
At night, I add their lavender oil to their coconut oil base and use it as a skin serum. The lavender scent is so soothing and such a perfect way to unwind from my busy day with the little ones. Do you use essential oils? #ad @naturestruth #EmbraceEssentialOils #StimulateTheSenses #healthyhairnow

  • Last Tuesday, Lexi and I attended a baby wearing wall crawl event hosted by my sweet mama friend  @xo.rachelpitzel and @lillebaby in Venice Beach. To say these baby carriers are the best is an understatement. .
.
I've had my fair share of baby carriers for both girls. From high end to ultra inexpensive but the @lillebaby carrier I now own is perhaps the most versatile one I've seem. And the best part is that I've had absolutely zero back and shoulder pain and Lexi loves being in it. Oh and let me not forget about their designs. They're super fun and chic. .
.
A big thank you to @xo.rachelpitzel and @lillebaby for having Lexi and I. We had a great time meeting all the awesome moms and sweet babes. Not to mention how effortless it was walking around town with my little one in tow. Be sure to check out all their well-made carriers and all their rad prints and color options. #ad #babywearingmama #babywear 📸 @khauschka
  • Our little nuggets absolutely love milk. But what kid doesn't right? And since every cup contains balanced nutrition and natural protein, I'm all for it. .
.
Interestingly enough, milk is one of the original farm-to-table foods. Typically arriving on grocery shelves in just two days (or 48 hours, on average) from many family-owned and operated dairy farms. And of the 47,000 dairy farms in the United States, 97 percent – small and large – are family owned. .

  • Blog Post Alert!! 🚨🚨🚨 .
.
A couple years ago, our oldest, Mia, was turning 4 years old. We wanted to do something extra special but weren’t sure exactly what. .
.
So rather than throw her a big birthday party as per usual, we asked her if she wanted to go to Disneyland instead. She quickly replied, “yes but I want to go to the hotel too.” I’m not even kidding. She asked us that. I think it’s due to us taking her to the park since she was two years old and us always passing by the hotel while walking to and from our parking spot. .
.
To be honest, the convenience factor of it all actually sounded quite heavenly.😍
.
.

Well fast forward 2 yrs and we’re still doing the Disneyland Hotel stay and park visit for Mia’s birthday. It’s sorta become a tradition now. And today, we’re sharing our top 8 reasons why we recommend doing so for your kiddos birthdays as well. Link in bio. 😘#disneylandresort #travelingwithkids #dreambigprincess #disneymom #healthyhairnow

Back to school, sports activities and working from home/ on the road with little ones has been kicking my 🍑.😆 But even with all the crazy busy schedules, I'm trying my absolute best to stop and really be present. To savor and store in my mind all the funny and sweet moments our kiddos create daily. .

And speaking of moments, any new funny things your kiddos are doing or saying lately? Lexi has become a bilingual taking & dancing machine. And can probably get a Masters in 'tiny' pinching.😆🙈Ouch! 📸: Lilyro_ 😍
