Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

Slow cooker chicken fajitas!  Can you say, “Yum?” Their bright colors and sizzling aroma attracts lots of attention at restaurants.  Fajitas are one of the things that I order most when ever we go out for Mexican food.  It is one of those thing that I never make at home though I’m not sure why.  I guess I consider it a luxury item reserved for the special occasion of going out.  Either that or I just don’t feel like marinating everything and standing at the stove sauteing it all.  Either way, that is no longer the case.  This recipe is so easy and has so much flavor, that I will be making them quite often!  And the best part is… it cooks all day while you do other things!

The boys ate theirs with corn tortillas that I placed in the oven to make the shells hard (they don’t care for soft corn tortillas).  I opted to make mine a salad over kale with olives and avocado and some white cheddar cheese.  Both yummy choices!  Enjoy!
