Crock Pot Fajitas

I made this Crock Pot Fajita Recipe yesterday and it was SO easy and made the house smell SO good - oh and it was yummy. I have modified the recipe a little from the original.

Cook 4 hrs. on high or 8 hrs. on low

Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas Recipe

1/2 yellow onion, sliced

1 red pepper, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 ½ pounds boneless chicken breast or thighs (3-4 pcs)
½ cup chicken broth
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cumin
1/2 - 1 tablespoons chili powder (depends on how spicy you like things - you could always use less and put hot sauce on it later as a topping)
Squirt of lime juice ( I used the bottled kind)
Tortillas (we used gluten free corn tortillas)
Fajita toppings - For me: cilantro, salsa and avacado. For Dave: same as me but with cheese and sour cream

Sides: 1 can of black beans with cilantro and lime juice heated in a sauce pan. Plus yellow spanish rice sprinkled with peas.

Lay the sliced veggies down in bottom of crockpot.
Add chicken stock
Lay chicken over this mixture
Sprinkle the salt, cumin and chili pepper
Add lime juice

4-8 hours, done!

Shred chicken and use a slotted spoon to serve on tortillas.
