Today I have an AMAZING recipe for you. It’s a double bonus because it’s a crock pot recipe and boy aren’t those things life savers!? My crock pot is my BFF these day. When life’s been so busy I rely on this little gem to cook dinner for me. 🙂
For all you Mexican food lovers these Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas will quickly become a new favorite. The flavors are incredible with the bell peppers, onion and an assortment of Mexican spices. The fresh lime juice and honey you throw in at the end make these extra good, so don’t skip that part!
These fajitas are such a delicious and healthy meal you can throw together in the morning and enjoy in the evening with hardly any fuss!
