Mexican Monday, Taco Tuesday, Fajita Friday ….I can find a Tex Mex food for every day of the week!
We still call it Taco Tuesday every week but really it will consist of many different Mexican favorites. I learned early on as a mom that Mexican food is something kids love for a few reasons. Mainly it’s often something you can eat with your hands (which is always a plus with kids….all they usually hear is please use your fork properly). It’s interactive and fun to make and the ingredients almost always appeal to a picky palette. The one thing about this type of food is that it often allows the child and the parents to make it to their tastes. Kids like it mild, no problem; parents like it super spicy…add hot sauce to your own portion. I’ve even gotten my kids eating fish tacos this way. This week though I decided it was time for something different and new. The girls love traditional chili but I wanted something lighter and healthier. In came White Chicken Chili!!
In my search for the perfect recipe I came across this one. It’s pretty quick and super simple. My picky little palettes have become quite the chicken snobs and only like organic now lol, and I have to agree once you tasted the difference it’s hard to go back to conventional chicken. If you want to make this a quick meal for the family after work, throw the chicken in a crockpot on low and cook it for 6hrs and let it naturally cool in the crockpot while you’re at work. It will be very moist and easily fall off the bone. The rest of the recipe will come together very easily.
We used Pillsbury crescent roll wraps because they cook quickly and taste moist and flaky for dipping in the chili. Feel free to use any dough you’d like. Although my first try was with pizza dough and truthfully it was a pain to work with and didn’t come out that great. We added lots of toppings like lime, sour cream, chopped cilantro, tomatoes, tortilla strips and chili peppers so the kids still felt like they could make it their own and have fun “playing” with their food! Happy Cravings!!
