1
green bell pepper/ sliced
1
yellow onion / sliced
2 lb
boneless skinless chicken breasts/cut in half
4 clove

2 Tbsp
taco seasoning

Directions Step-By-Step

1
For serving: (optional)
Flour Tortillas
Cheese
Sour Cream
Guacamole

*To make your own Taco Seasoning at home: (or use pre-made taco seasoning mix)
- 1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
- 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 1/3 tsp Oregano
- 1/2 tsp Paprika
- 1 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Black Pepper
- 1 tsp Corn Starch

Add half of the sliced peppers and onions to your slow cooker. Next, layer the chicken and coat all sides with taco seasoning. Top with garlic, tomatoes (be sure to drain) and the juice from one lime.
Add the remaining peppers and onions, cover, and cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours. Remove chicken and cut/shred into slices (chicken left longer will tend to shred more - cook to your preference). Return the sliced chicken to the slow cooker to marinate in the juices for about 10 more minutes (on LOW) until ready to serve. If you find that there is too much liquid, you can remove till there is a desired amount before serving. Assemble Fajitas to your liking - we recommend topping with cheese, sour cream, and guacamole! Enjoy!
