Crock Pot or Slow Cooker Heart Healthy Chicken Tacos

crock pot or slow cooker heart healthy chicken tacos recipe. So tasty and easy too!

Last week I told you about the awesome Address Your Heart with Campbell’s Pinterest sweepstakes and a little bit about how I am trying to live a more heart healthy life.

Campbell has a whole section on the Campbell’s Kitchen website of easy great recipes that are heart healthy and I adapted their slow cooker chicken taco recipe for my family. It is so easy to make and EVERYONE in my family loved it. That is a huge accomplishment because there always seems to be one person who isn’t very happy with dinner. I will admit both girls were a little worried about the chicken when they saw it but they loved it once they tried it. I didn’t include the green peppers and onions because I knew my daughters would balk at eating those. If you have a more adventurous family, I would be sure to include them. [Read more…]
