Quick, easy, and everyone in the house loves it.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This fajita recipe is such a time saver. Put all the ingredients in a slow cooker, turn it on, and forget about it. The chicken turns out tender and easy to shred. Once shredded, it goes back into the Crock Pot to mingle with the sauce. Spooned onto the tortillas, it makes really flavorful fajitas. These will be great if you're serving a crowd. Set up a fajita bar with the chicken and toppings and let everyone create their own.

Note: Every slow cooker is different. We suggest checking the chicken after 5 hours since some cook faster. Also, serve the chicken with a slotted spoon to remove the juices before placing on the tortilla. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
