Stop Everything And Make Fajitas In Your Slow Cooker

That juice tho.

1. Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

2. RECIPE:

Serves ten.

Here’s what you need:
- One red bell pepper / sliced
- One yellow bell pepper / sliced
- One green bell pepper / sliced
- One yellow onion / sliced
- Two pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts / cut in half
- Two Tbsp. taco seasoning*
- Four cloves garlic / diced
- One lime
- One 10 once can diced tomatoes with green chiles / drained

For serving: (optional)
- flour tortillas
- cheese
- sour cream
- guacamole

*To make your own Taco Seasoning at home: (or use pre-made taco seasoning mix)
- 1 Tbsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/3 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp corn starch

Add half of the sliced peppers and onions to your slow cooker. Next, layer the chicken and coat all sides with taco seasoning. Top with garlic, tomatoes (be sure to drain) and the juice from one lime. Add the remaining peppers and onions, cover, and cook on high for three-four hours. Remove chicken and cut/shred into slices (chicken left longer will tend to shred more - cook to your preference). Return the sliced chicken to the slow cooker to marinate in the juices for about 10 more minutes (on low) until ready to serve. If you find that there is too much liquid, you can remove till there is a desired amount before serving. Assemble the fajitas to your liking - we recommend topping with cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. Enjoy!
