Most of us love to nosh no matter what diet we’re on, but light party snack options can be far and few between. On top of having fewer calories, apricot chicken lettuce wraps are made easy with the help of a slow cooker. Boom, a simple and refreshing appetizer.
As a game day favorite and perfect staple for backyard barbeques, Mexican seven layer dip is also a stress-free appetizer when the slow cooker is involved. Layers of refried beans, black beans, onions, peppers, cheese, and sour cream, will all become friends in the crock-pot, and score a homerun for your party.
