Although the dish is normally cooked with milk and served in tortillas topped with sour cream and cheese, this paleo version substitutes with almond milk and lettuce wraps and is garnished with avocado slices, red onion and fresh cilantro. Best of all, a slow cooker allows you to set it up before work and come back to a ready-made dinner party. Guests will love this make-your-own dish.
