Banh Mi sandwiches seem to be popping up everywhere lately! Have you tried one yet? If not, you should definitely jump on it! This Vietnamese sandwich is layered with tender marinated pork, pickled carrots and radishes, sliced fresh cucumbers and drizzled with a tangy mayo. The term “Banh Mi” actually means bread, as this sandwich is usually made on a crusty baguette, but today I’ve transformed this amazing sandwich into a healthy, flavor-packed taco!

Best of all it’s made in the slow cooker, which is my all-time favorite appliance lately. I can plop some ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning and by dinner time the kitchen is smelling mouthwateringly delicious and dinner is ready to go! This recipe is simple and easy, with no crazy ingredients. The pickled veggies make these tacos! They are the perfect combination of sweet and tangy sour and along with the cilantro they brighten up this dish so much you’ll feel the joy at first bite! The spicy mayo marries all the flavors and rounds out the flavor explosion.

The shredded chicken is pup friendly if your willing to share ­čÖé When Cricket’s nose gets the best of her in the kitchen she has a unique way of getting what she wants. Instead of begging like most ordinary dogs do, she pouts! Yep, she lays down (somewhere in the way so I have to step over her- yes, that’s intentional!) and puts a sad face on. Eventually I feel badly, and give her some of the yummies! You don’t believe me that she is that manipulative? Well, here is the proof:

No she’s not sleeping……She’s working me over! lol

Now for taco assembly…..You can use purple cabbage for the taco shells which is a super healthy, flavorful, and eye-catching option. Did you know veggies with deep colors are the healthiest for you? You can read more about that HERE if you’re interested! You can also use Boston Bibb lettuce, or hard or soft taco shells. The choice is yours! Enjoy.
