Crockpot Beef Fajitas

If I haven't mentioned it before, I LOVE my crockpot. It is just SO nice to come home from work and have dinner already cooked, sitting there waiting patiently for you. This dish is nice because you can use relatively cheap cuts of meat (I usually use london broil) - since it is sliced thin and slow cooked all day, it gets pretty tender. I haven't tried this with chicken yet, but I'm sure it would come out just as good.

I like to get everything ready the night before, so in the morning all I have to do is dump everything in the crock and turn it on. For this dish, that means I slice the meat and veggies the night before and have them ready in the fridge. Then I set out the crockpot and the fajita seasoning on the counter so I see them and remember to get everything going in the morning. I don't function so well in the mornings, so if I don't have the "reminder" on the counter, I will forget :)

Crockpot Beef Fajitas
  • 1 lb thinly sliced steak
  • 1 package fajita sesoning mix, or homemade equivalent
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 to 2 cups sliced bell peppers (I like a mix of green and red)
  • 1 to 2 cups sliced onion
  • 6 flour tortillas
  • toppings of your choice: grated cheese, sour cream, etc
Put meat in crockpot, top with seasoning, add water. Cook on low all day (8-10) hours. About 30 - 60 minutes before serving, add bell peppers and onions and mix well. Serve on warmed flour tortillas, top with cheese and sour cream.
