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.
