Crock-Pot Fajitas


Yes, YOU!!

You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.


Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post you know how to make it...

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!

Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!

And this story...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;)

So, you can thank her...I guess.

Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!

You'll need this:

And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)

Just keepin' up with the times, friend.

So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...

And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...

(Lemme just interject here...sorry for the interruption...but, I can't believe they eat pepper strips! Heck, I just convinced Mr. Wonderful, like, last week that they were delicious!!! 'Cept the green ones, apparently, 'cuz Baby Girl kept saying, "No, da's yucky!")

Sorry, for that random digression...

So, next, you'll wanna layer in the meat, with the veggies on top.

Toss on some garlic (yes, I cheat...who has time to peel and chop up garlic when there is laundry to wash, dishes to do, butts to wipe, faces to clean, beds to make...)...

Then, sprinkle the seasonings over the top (and, I must confess...sprinkling and photographing simultaneously must be a lot like walking and chewing gum. It's really hard)...

Next, pour the tomatoes, juice and all, right over everything!

This, is what it'll look like prior to hitting that "cook" button...

When it's all done cooking, shred chicken, toss back into crock pot and serve your new favorite dinner to your very thankful family!

Note from the poor house...please excuse the Dora the Explorer plate...I was fresh outta clean dishes, so it had to do...not that it's really any worse than the Corelle...but, whatev!

Crock Pot Fajitas

1lb flank steak or chicken breast (or half of each)
1 sm onion, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 jalapeno, diced (optional)
1-2 T. chili powder
1-2 cloves garlic, diced
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. coriander
1 large or 2 small cans diced tomatoes

Cut steak and chicken into strips (don't worry about cutting the shreds nicely when done, so save yourself some work, and toss those breasts in whole!) and place on bottom of crock pot. Put veggies on top, then garlic and spices, and pour over the tomatoes (undrained...and P.S. I used Rotel, yummo!!).

Cook 4-5 hours on high, or 8-10 on low, pull out meat, shred it, toss it back in and you're ready to serve!

Serve on fajita tortillas with your favorite "condiments" (lettuce, cheese, salsa, sour cream, etc.).

The end.

Once again, I love you, too.

  20. Those look delish! I'm putting it on the menu for next week!

  21. i feel so disobedient for not cooking that right now. but the only thing in my kitchen is the $700 (yes you read that right ) worth of groceries i bought today and a throw away pan i bought to make pizzas on. but i promise after the movers deliver all my stuff tomorow i will try to. do you think they will mind if i say it is your fault i want all my kitchen stuff first. really, it looks like a great recipe and i can not wait to try it

  22. This looks so yummy...I can't wait to try it out!! Thanks for sharing!

  23. Delish! You need a pampered chef garlic press. I'm not a cook more a pampered chef person, but someone gave us one and there's no going back. I love it! And I can't wait to try this! It looks delicious!

  24. ummmm I'm drooling all over my desk!! Yum...

  26. Looks like a great recipe. I will be cooking this up tonight.

  27. This is in my crock pot now! It smells delicious!

  28. These were sooo good. A little too juicy for me, I might drain one of my cans of tomatoes (I used 1 can Rotel-YUM and 1 of plain diced tomatoes) next time, but the flavor was out of this world and it was so darn easy to prep. Thank you for sharing!

  29. This looks awesome! Can't wait to try it!
