My husband and I are trying to be better about our eating habits lately, paying much closer attention to our calorie intake and macros. It’s always a thrill when we come up with a new meal idea that fits our needs AND is super tasty!
This week we cooked up some chicken in our crockpot, seasoned it with enspice’s chipotle bbq, and served it shredded on lettuce wraps with a little shredded cheese and some grilled veggies. The result? A simple, tasty, and healthy meal!
As a gastric sleeve patient, it’s important for me to eat plenty of protein, so low cal / high protein is a winning combo. Chicken that is breaded or drenched in sauce can certainly be tasty, but with the right seasoning, you can avoid those things and still make your tastebuds happy.
Enspice seasonings for a tasty, healthy dish
Using enspice in this dish gave our chicken just the right amount of flavor, without having to rely on rich, sugary sauces.
Enspice sent us a whole set of seasoning and spices to try out, so now we’re all prepped to create healthy, flavorful meals. I’m excited to try out the Cape Cod on some fish, and we already used the taco seasoning for a taco night!
Not only does enspice make meals taste better — they are enhanced with plant-based vitamins and minerals. These nutrients are heat-resistant, making them perfect to cook with. The seasonings and spices are non-GMO, kosher, and gluten-free.
And, in addition to all that goodness, enspice donates a meal for a child in need with each purchase. So you can eat good, feel good, and do good!

Slow Cooker Chipotle BBQ Chicken recipe
Whenever we make a chicken slow cooker meal, we usually cook up 4-5 pounds of chicken and use the leftovers the next day to make quesadillas. It’s a great way to make two meals at once!
So while the recipe below only calls for 2 pounds of chicken, feel free to make more and just increase all the other ingredients proportionately.
You can pick and choose your own veggies to include or make things super simple and buy a package of pre-cut fajita veggies. This busy mom goes the easy route.
