Women have a lot of heart! We get up early. We stay up late. We pack little notes in lunches, kiss boo-boos, comfort friends, strengthen communities, and single-handily manage 101 other things each and every day.
Because Campbell Soup Company knows the value of a woman’s heart, they have partnered with the American Heart Association to encourage women to make healthy choices that help their hearts and prevent heart disease. One way that they have done this is by sharing heart-healthy recipes on the American Heart Association® Certified Recipes page of their website, Campbell’s Kitchen. These recipes feature Campbell’s Healthy Request® varieties of soups that still have the great taste your family loves, but meets the criteria for the American Heart Association’s heart check mark.
I recently needed a fun recipe for a family gathering so I decided to try one of the heart-healthy dishes from the Campbell’s Kitchen Website. Because my entire family loves tacos, I decided to try their recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos. This recipe was unbelievably easy to throw together and really pleased a crowd.
I cooked the chicken mixture in the slow cooker, so when it was meal-time all I had to do was pull out some tortillas, topped with chopped lettuce, diced avocado, and non-fat plain Greek Yogurt for easy and delicious tacos.
I think I could also change things up by layering lettuce, avocado, black beans, corn, and the shredded chicken along with a few tortillas chips for a bright and healthy chicken taco salad.
Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 medium green bell pepper, sliced (about 1 cup)
1 large onion, cut in half and sliced (about 1 cup)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Healthy Request® Condensed Tomato Soup
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chile powder
3/4 cup Pace® Picante Sauce
1. In a 4-quart or larger slow cooker, mix green pepper, onion, garlic, soup, cumin and chile powder.
2. Cover slow cooker and cook on low setting for 7-8 hours. You will know it is ready when chicken can be shredded easily with a fork. Remove the chicken to a cutting board. Shred chicken then return to slow cooker on “warm” setting.
3. Stir in the picante sauce, and keep in slow cooker on warm until ready to serve
3. Serve the chicken mixture in warm tortillas with lettuce, avocado and your favorite taco toppings.
