Chicken Ranch Fiesta Wraps is a simple crock pot dinner which will make your family smile. Since you control the condiments, you will smile too because your kids are getting their veggies, with a flavorful chicken ranch filling.
Crock Pot Chicken Ranch Fiesta Wraps! 8th recipe in my yearlong series “52 weeks of slow cooker meals”
The biggest struggle we have as parents is how to get our kids to eat good healthy food on a daily basis. But it is so hard to come up with new dishes to make and who has the time.
So most families end up eating processed foods, fast food or even just cold cereal. Yuck! I admit that even though my blog is all about healthy easy dinners it is tough to come up with new recipes; So I mess around with simple ingredients and try to change-up the way I serve them.
For my Crock Pot Chicken Ranch Fiesta Wraps the combination of ranch dressing and taco seasonings made for a wonderful flavor explosion. I also use boneless chicken breasts and thighs for a till more flavor.
But the winner here is the condiments used to build the wraps. For the wrap itself I used low-calorie, low-fat Italian style flat breads from Flat Out. These have less than 90 calories.
I basically created a wrap bar so the kids could fill their wraps with awesome healthy ingredients like avocado, baby spinach, cilantro, tomatoes, black olives, red onion, fat-free ranch and pepper jack cheese.
Simply through all the ingredients for the Chicken Ranch Fiesta Wraps into the crock pot in the morning. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
Shred the chicken and add a little ranch dressing to make it a little creamier. Chop up your condiments and you are ready to serve your family an easy healthy weeknight dinner.
