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.
I loved how easy it was to make and it was very flavorful. You just throw everything in the slow cooker and dinner is ready when you need it. This is especially nice for those nights that we don’t get home from soccer practice until 7:00 pm and people are starving. I recently bought this great crock pot that is programmable and once the cooking time ends it just keeps it warm. That way you don’t have to worry about your recipe being overcooked when you don’t make it home in time. This recipe is definitely going into the regular rotation at our home.
