“When I don't have much time to cook supper, slow cooker chicken fajitas are a flavorful way to keep my family full and satisfied. Try spicing things up with medium or hot picante sauce."
Michele Furry, Plains, Montana


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1-1/2 cups picante sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 12 flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional toppings: sour cream, sliced ripe olives and thinly sliced green onions
