crock pot chicken fajitas

Chicken Fajitas
(great freezer meal option!)

Our Rating: ½

2 peppers (your favorite) - cut into strips
1/2 onion - diced
1 1/2 pound chicken breast
1/2 cup chicken broth
taco seasoning packet
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. salt
You will also need tortillas, and toppings of your choice: cheese, sour cream, shredded lettuce or cabbage, avocado, etc.

Cook all ingredients (minus tortillas and toppings) in a slow cooker on high for 3-4 hours or low for 5-6 hours. When it's cooked, shred the meat and add it back to the pepper mixture and serve on warm tortillas with your favorite toppings.

If making into a freezer meal, put all raw ingredients (minus tortillas and toppings) into a gallon sized freezer bag. Label the bag with the instructions. Freeze so that the frozen contents of the bag can be placed directly into the crock pot without thawing. Once ready to eat just put frozen contents of bag in crock pot and cook as directed. I separate all my freezer meals into 2 quart sized bags since it's just Eddy and I to feed so far. That way we can save one of the meals to eat at a later date. :)
