Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

Happy New Year!  I hope 2011 brings everyone countless new blessings.  It will certainly be a big year for my family, and I hope it will be a great year for you and yours.

One New Year's Day tradition is to eat black eyed peas for good luck and cabbage (or some other leafy green vegetable) for money.  However, since I don't like black eyed peas and neither of us likes cabbage, we're crossing our fingers and eating fajitas instead.  Be honest; wouldn't you rather have fajitas, too?  I thought so.

We were very excited to use our new Crock Pot (thanks, Mom!), and the fajitas did not disappoint.  The smell of them cooking throughout the day was almost as good as how they tasted.  It would be wonderful to put these on before you leave for work and then enjoy them when you get home, too.  I hope you like them as much as we did!

Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

1 1/2 lbs chicken breast, cut into thin strips
1 sweet onion, cut into thin wedges and separated
2 Tbsp lime juice
1-2 garlic cloves, minced (or 1 tsp garlic powder)
3/4 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chicken broth
6-8 flour tortillas

Optional Ingredients to Serve with Fajitas:
Shredded Cheese
Sour Cream
Sliced Jalapeno Peppers

Place chicken, onion, and bell pepper in crock pot.  Sprinkle spices over all.  Add the chicken broth and lime juice, and stir well.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.  Cook for over 6 hours if starting with frozen chicken breast.  Serve in warm tortillas with your favorite toppings.
