Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

I got to go to another UT game this weekend.  It was so much fun. UT played New Mexico and it was a shut out game.  While I was there I proceeded to eat a hot dog AND a sausage wrap.  After the weekend, I noticed the scale wasn’t being too kind.  I know it wasn’t just the game. I’ve been snacking more and eating nachos almost every day for the last week.  My friend told me I should think about preparing my meals for the week on Sunday or Monday and then I have no excuse to not eat healthy.  I usually use the excuse that I was starving by the time I got home from work, so I HAD to eat whatever was the fastest to make, aka nachos.

Since I’m really not a cook, I like to rely on my crockpot.  Knowing that one of the guys on my group texts gets REALLY angry about us doing crockpot or baked fajitas, I decided that I was going to make crockpot fajitas just to annoy him. When I told him what I was making, he sent me the dictionary definition of fajitas and said I was making a roast.  No matter what they technically are, I really liked what I’m calling my “crockpot chicken fajitas”!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 large white onion chopped
1 Tbsp. chopped garlic
1tsp. dried oregano
1tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 can of rotel

Additional Ingredient Options:
Low carb tortillas
Guacamole
Sour Cream
Shredded Cheese
Anything else you like on your fajitas

Put all the ingredients in the crockpot.

Cook on high for 4 – 5 hours.

Slice the chicken into strips

Put sliced chicken, onion/tomato mix, cheese, sour cream, guacamole (or whatever else you like on your fajitas) on a tortilla and eat up!
