Ingredients

  • 1 pkg (1.27 oz) fajita seasoning

  • 1.5-2 lb chicken
  • 8 Tortillas
  • Desired toppings such as: sour cream, cheese, avocado, and jalapenos

Instructions

  • In the crockpot, dump fajita seasoning, frozen peppers and onions, and chicken.
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours (3-4 hours on high) or until chicken is cooked through. Shred chicken with a fork.
  • Scoop out fajita mixture with a slotted spoon (because it gets nice and juicy!) and serve on tortillas with desired toppings such as sour cream, cheese, avocado, and jalapeno.

Notes

This can also double as a freezer meal.  Instead of dumping ingredients into the slow cooker, dump them into a freezer gallon bag and freeze.  Thaw before cooking in the Crock-Pot.  
Store for up to 3 months in the freezer and 3 days in the refrigerator.  
 
Chicken can be breasts or tenderloins.  I've found that tenderloins will cook a little sooner though, so check before 8 hours. 
If you prefer fresh vegetables, you can cut your own peppers and onions.
