May Box #HormelFamily Blogger #sp

Another month-another box!!
Did YOU know?:
National Salsa Month: May is National Salsa month, so kick it off with a salsa-themed meal using varying levels of spice and see just how hot you can go – jalapenos, anyone? Cool down with this Chicken Milanese Quesadilla recipe – a perfect blend of marinated chicken and creamy citrus flavors – using HERDEZ® Tortillas in traditional white corn, cracked whole wheat or classic flour varieties. 

     I had the opportunity to try the Herdez Tortillas in combination with the Herdez Cooking Sauces which was more favorable than expected. I have  little kids as well as big kids in my home and it is not the taste of the food but the "heat" from the food that I am always concerned with.
              ***Shredded Chicken Soft Tacos**
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts in crock pot(frozen or thawed)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup-1 cup chicken broth or water
cook on low 7hours
remove from crockpot, with 2 forks shred chicken to your liking(empty water from crockpot), return shredded chicken to crockpot, add jar of Herdez cooking sauce (I used Red Guajillo Chile-as this was provided in my box)  I did add a 1/2 of water to chicken sauce mixture because I wanted the meat and sauce to be thin so as not to burn or get chewy. Turn back on low cook for 1 hour.
**sauce One of the most widely used peppers across Mexico, the guajillo chile’s aromatic green tea notes and slightly sweet berry undertones are artfully paired with fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes to create our Red Guajillo Chile Mexican Cooking Sauce. A tangy, fruity finish with gentle heat, this robust red chile sauce is ideal for cooking up

** My impression was it was either going to be too fruity or too spicy and it was neither it had a mild heat, that was non lingering. The flavor was a hit in my home and the flavor combination is endless, so many ideas and so many uses. This is perfect for a family with little ones who like the mexican food just not the burning taste.
