Lettuce wraps are light and refreshing. They are a tasty lower-carb option when you need a little break from the heaviness of breads and starchy foods. These lettuce “tacos” as I like to call them, are just like a taco but they are wrapped in lettuce rather than in a tortilla. The chicken filling is made in the slower cooker and the toppings take just a few minutes to prepare.
I’m a big fan of my Crock-Pot because I can stick all of the ingredients in one pot, put on the lid and walk away. As a mom with a busy toddler, I greatly appreciate the invention of this saving machine!! Salsa is the main ingredient in this chicken and I recommend using more of a runny salsa over a thick salsa. Something more runny adds extra liquid and hydrates the chicken better.
It’s nice to make a little taco bar with all of the ingredients so that others can prepare their tacos as they like. I used a few of my favorite taco toppers including avocados, olives, sour cream, and of course some cheese.
