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] Yes to pool parties, ice cream dates and the prettiest summer bouquets from @Teleflora 💐 I bet you didn’t know Teleflora's network of professional florists can create artistic arrangements like this one? I sure didn’t! This one reminds me of being on vacation in Hawaii. 🏝Swipe to see a close up & check out our stories to use our discount code on any gorgeous summer bouquet. 🤗👌
  • I thought it would be cute to get matching sunglasses & outfits to take a fun pic at this wall. I’ll blame the hot weather for this one. 😅 .
BUT, the truth is aren’t all the pics of our kids the best regardless if they’re looking at the camera, smiling or just being themselves? These are the real deal. Lexi running around not wanting to wear her sunglasses nor stand still. Mia not wanting to wear a dress & wanting to just climb things or take her own selfies with her iPod (aka phone). 🤣 Duh all kid things. Just a daily reminder to myself that I need to #letthembekids 🙈 .

hosted by @jessicaalba at the Honest Headquarters. The event was nothing short of spectacular filled with delicious food, drinks and yummiest gluten-free vegan desserts from @yvonnesvegankitchen And, yes, Jessica Alba really is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. 😍 I asked her how she was able to balance family and business and guess what she said? She’s got the best help, her sis-in-law. 😘  She also mentioned that she created every single product for herself. How awesome is that? .

And speaking of family love, it melts my heart to see our oldest reading Fancy Nancy books 📚 to her little sis. So you can just imagine the reaction these two had when they found out they were invited to a Fancy Nancy tea party inside Walt Disney Studios. And even got to see the first episode! 😱Beyond ecstatic and grateful. Merci it was all Magnifique! Can’t wait for you all to see it. Catch the premier tomorrow at 11a on Disney Junior. And stick around to see our stories of the event throughout the day. 💕#DisneyFancyNancy #DisneyJunior

And more so with kids. 😆 Amiright? Lately we’ve been going on day dates. And although extremely grateful for it, I’m now having #momguilt because our oldest is questioning why she can’t come with us and that we don’t play with her like we use to. 😩 The struggle of finding balance is real. How do you find balance? I feel like I’m being pulled different directions and I know I’m not alone on this. #momlifeyo #teammarriage 📸💕 @lilyro_

I try my best to make sure I’m #raisinggoodhumans but also independent & brave ones. Zip lining, archery, rock climbing, mining, cycling and hanging out with Santa🎅🏼& Mrs Claus 🤶🏻. Just some of the things our 6-year-old experienced yesterday. And although she’s scared of heights, she rock climbed on an outdoor 30-foot wall! Cried a little & attempted to go higher every time. She got more than half way up which is huge in her eyes. On the way out she said it was actually fun and wants to go on again to go higher. Yes my love! You are amazing. 🙌🏼 .
