Whether you like it or not football season is here. From now until the beginning of February, thousands of Americans will be parking their butts in front of the TV and watching their favorite teams. I never used to care about watching football, but ever since moving to Colorado things have changed. I suddenly got hit with the game day fever and actually look forward to watching the Broncos play. Heck, I even own a couple Broncos shirts which is unheard of if you knew me 3 years ago. It’s hard not to get excited about football season when you live in a city that is full of die hard fans. You know what else is hard not to get excited about on game day? The food!
Even if you don’t like watching the game, how can you not like eating the food?! Chips, dips, wings, pizza, anything and everything with melted cheese and don’t even get me started on the sweet stuff! With all the over the top food you can make or order sometimes it’s nice to have something a little healthier to help balance everything out. Today I’m giving you a recipe that’s easy to make and great for game day or any day, Slow Cooker Chipotle BBQ Chicken Sandwiches.
Slow cooker food is great for feeding a crowd. There’s not much work involved in preparing the meal, it makes the house smell great and you don’t have many dishes to wash. One of my favorite kinds of meat to put in my slow cooker is chicken and shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches are probably one of my favorite things to eat. To add a spicy twist to these BBQ chicken sandwiches I decided to use chipotle chile peppers. They add the perfect amount of heat and smokey flavor that goes great with the sweetness of the homemade BBQ sauce.
Speaking of the homemade BBQ sauce, it has a little secret added to it, but no one will ever know. Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. If you haven’t tried collagen peptides yet, it’s time to hop on board. This flavorless powder dissolves in both hot and cold foods and is undetectable. I’ve added it not only to these BBQ chicken sandwiches, but my husband’s favorite macaroni and cheese, smoothies, even my coffee. So what’s the benefit of adding the collagen? For one you’re getting extra protein which is always a good thing. Collagen is also great for your hair, skin and nails, supports bone and joint health, can help you sleep better and can help with digestion. The question you should be asking yourself is why aren’t you adding it to your food and drinks?! When you serve your family and friends these Slow Cooker Chipotle BBQ Chicken Sandwiches this football season you can feel good knowing that they’re putting quality, great tasting food in their bodies on game day!
