Fall and football season is officially upon us and I don’t know about you all but I absolutely love tailgating and having fun gatherings with family and friends to watch the big game!
But one thing I don’t love is all the greasy tailgating food, which is why I’ve teamed up with Save-A-Lot today to share one of my favorite easy and healthy recipes- Skinny Chicken Taco Pinwheels! They’re the perfect light snack for tailgating, oh so delicious, and super simple to make.
Skinny Chicken Taco Pinwheels
These Skinny Chicken Taco Pinwheels are super delicious and packed full of flavor that you won’t be able to resist! Even better this no-fuss recipe is easy to whip together and will have you enjoying tailgating time with your family and friends in no time!
To make them, you need only a few simple ingredients including lean, boneless-skinless chicken breast, light cream cheese, green onions, diced tomatoes with jalapenos, shredded cheddar cheese, burrito sized flour tortillas, and taco seasoning.
I picked up all the ingredients I needed at the Lebanon Save-A-Lot location and I always love the great selection of both private and national brands that Save-A-Lot offers. I was especially impressed with their fresh produce and just had to pick up some fresh celery and carrots to pair with my Chicken Taco Pinwheels.
Want to know my favorite thing about shopping at Save-A-Lot , though? The prices! Save-A-Lot puts the customer’s budget first and offers 40% lower prices on everyday essentials, so that customers can use their money for other important things. I’ve personally shopped at Save-A-Lot for years now and I always look at their weekly ad to find the best prices on items I love!
For pairing with the fresh celery and carrots, I also picked up a packet of ranch seasoning and light sour cream for a healthier dip. It’s a nice way to add flavor when eating fresh veggies without going overboard on the calories! For serving, I put everything on an adorable football tray, which is the perfect touch to any game day party!
And now for the recipe! These pinwheels are so easy to put together and you truly do get the full flavor of chicken tacos in them! I mean is there anything better?!
For the shredded chicken used in this recipe, I seasoned the chicken breast with salt and pepper, drizzled lightly with olive oil, and threw in the crock pot for 3 hours on low. This gets the chicken nice and tender, and makes shredding a breeze!
