Lazy Crock Pot Chicken Fajtas

I am the type of person that doesn't do any more work than I have to.

Ok, so that is a complete and utter lie. I am extremely stubborn, and I am constantly making things harder than they have to be.

But, this is the perfect example of a recipe for a day when life gets in the way and your nights seem like a whirlwind. Sometimes the last thing you have time for is to spend several hours in the kitchen. But occasionally, what the body needs is a good home cooked meal.
Just about anybody can make these.
Prepare all of the ingredients the night before, and in the morning before you rush to work (or the gym, or the grocery store, or class, or the mall... you get the idea.) throw all of the ingredients into the crock pot and hurriedly dash off to your destination. I am in love with this recipe. My family goes "all out" when we have Mexican. We do the chips and soft tacos, salsa, re-fried beans (which are not fried at all by the way,), guacamole, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, bell pepper, onions, and cilantro. Oh, do not forget cilantro. That beloved herb is dear to my heart.
Enjoy dear friends.

Lazy Crockpot Chicken Fajitas


1 (40 oz) family-sized bag of boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 red onions
4 multicolored bell peppers
1 container baby bella mushrooms
1 1/2 to 2 packets taco seasoning
1 tsp. chili powder (optional)
1/2 Tbs. liquid smoke (optional)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. lime juice (optional)


1. Chop onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms.

So beautiful isn't it?
God didn't have to make food beautiful.

But He did.
Isn't He good?

2. Put chicken in the crock pot and sprinkle taco seasoning on chicken.

3. Layer bell pepper,

mushrooms, and onions in the crock pot.

4. Pour the hot sauce, liquid smoke, chili powder, lime juice, and salt on top.

5. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2 to 3 hours.

6. Shred with a fork. Serve with tacos, letttuce, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, cheese, and whatever other taco-y things you would like.

7. Devour

Note: I had to ladle about 3 or 4 ladles of "chicken juice" out of the crock pot before serving. You do not have to do that, but I was not really interested in soggy tacos. If you don't want soggy tacos, ladle.

Thank you mexico.
