Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas/Bowls!

One of the FASTEST and EASIEST meals to throw together! My biggest pet peeve with crock pot meals is how so many recipes still require you to cook the meat before adding it to the crock pot… this one DOESN’T! ๐Ÿ˜
DIRECTIONS/INGREDIENTS:

1-2lb  chicken (I use frozen and throw it right in!)

1/2 -1 chopped red onion (depending on your preference and how much chicken you use)

1/2-1 chopped green pepper 

Mix 1 packet of taco seasoning with 1/2 jar of salsa. 
Throw everything in the crock pot, mix it all up, and cook on low for 6/8 hours.  Once it’s done, shred the chicken with two forks and place in soft taco shells with cheese and sour cream!   YUMMMM!!!

I, personally, skip on the fajita wrap and make it a rice bowl using rice I make to pair with the fajitas. I top that with sour cream and cheese and mix it all together (pictured below).  I make the rice right before we eat, because it’s fast and easy.  
RICE WITH BLACK BEANS AND CORN SIDE:

Prepare rice as usual…. 

in another sauce pan, mix black beans and corn and cook until done. 

Add beans and corn to the rice and add a little butter, adobo seasoning, and fresh ground pepper…YUMMM!!! 

This meal is a little higher in Sodium than I’d prefer, but it’s still better than having to order takeout! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Stay Healthy,
