Healthy Crockpot Quinoa Enchilada Lettuce Wraps

As a working mom, I’m a huge fan of the crock pot.  I’m pregnant and have a little toddler at home, so when I come home from work, I’m exhausted and want to spend as much time with my little one before he goes to bed. That being said, my crockpot has been a saving grace for busy work works and our busy household.  My go-to crockpot recipes are beef stroganoff and chili and have these on repeat throughout the winter.  Now I’m on the hunt for some new healthy crockpot recipes and I stumbled upon several variations of this quinoa enchilada dish.  Below is my variation of the quinoa enchilada recipes which I have improved and simplified.  It’s super easy… just throw the ingredients in a crock pot and wham-bam-thank you ma’am, done!  You can be home from work and a healthy, protein-packed dinner will be served!

Let me know if you’ve done any other variations of this and how it turned out! Thanks for trying and reading!

Xoxo, Rachael
