With busy schedules and swimsuit season around the corner, I know lots of us are looking for easy and healthy recipes. Salsa being low in calories, I wanted to incorporate it into a crockpot dish.
Here’s to eating sexy while looking sexy.
This dish is full of zest, fun, and lots of yum. The honey and lime really balance each other. Not to mention, there is a nice kick from the green chilis. To pull it back in, the greek yogurt/sour cream, cheese, and avocado make it perfectly creamy and cheesy. It is a Fiesta of Flavors…and I like it!
