Slow Poke Fajitas

My family loves fajitas, tacos, and burritos or just about anything that you can put in a wrap. We usually eat fajitas with all the fixings such as sliced green peppers, onions, salsa, etc. Since the green peppers and the onions can be frozen without blanching, this makes a simple meal to freeze ahead of time. It’s easy to cook it in the slow cooker when it’s one of those crazy, busy days. Just have some extra fixings on hand and dinner will be ready in a hurry. We also like to serve this with Rio Grande Rice.

We love fajitas and this is a great way to make them if you are in a hurry during the day. The crockpot does all the work for you.
