Latin-style Ratatouille. Put your crockpot to use!

This is such an easy way to get a delicious and healthy dinner on the table with very little effort. Let the crockpot do the work! This recipe is perfect for professionals and busy parents that don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.

Ratatouille is definitely a comfort dish for me. I am switching it up a bit by adding chayote squash, jalapeño, lime juice… and for bold flavors, a healthy dose of Alejandra’s Signature Sazón. It works perfect as a main or side dish. Hope you give it a try!
