I searched high and low for a great recipe for slow cooker fajitas before I came up with this. The best part for me is that I don't have to defrost the meat before I throw it in there. Also, this makes a very large batch, so it's good for big families or a crowd of guests.

This was VERY tasty, but too soupy for standard fajitas. Next time I will thin out the liquid and should get something a little closer to what I am looking for. Read More

Turned out very well! Tasty and tender chicken. I didn't add the veggies just because the family doesn't like them. Read More
