Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

These crock pot Fajitas were beyond easy (although regular fajitas aren't exactly taxing either) and had good flavor.  The only thing is that they don't really come out exactly like regular fajitas.  The chicken is shredded and the peppers and onions are softer than I usually like in my fajitas. The flavor is there, but don't expect it to look exactly like a fajita.  I ended up making a fajita bowl with some brown rice and black beans, as you can see in the pictures, and I thought it was really good.

Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas
From: Stacy Makes Cents
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook time: 6-8 hours

1 yellow onion, sliced
3 peppers (green, red, yellow, or orange), sliced
1 1/2 lbs boneless chicken breast
1/4 - 1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp cumin
1 1/2 Tbsp Chili powder
Squirt of lime juice
Fajita fixins

1. Combine sliced onion and peppers in the bottom of a greased crockpot.

2. Lay chicken on top of veggies

3. Pour broth over top, sprinkle with cumin, salt, chili powder and squirt of lime juice.

4.  Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

5. When meat is done, shred with two forks and stir back into juices.  Serve meat mixture with slotted spoon on tortillas with your choice of fixings.  Or serve over rice and black beans for a fajita bowl like I did. :)
