Fabulous Fajitas Recipe

Publisher Photo
I've enjoyed cooking since I was a girl growing up in the Southwest. When friends call to ask me for new recipes to try, I suggest these flavorful fajitas. It's wonderful to put the beef in the slow cooker before church and come home to a hot delicious main dish. -Janie Reitz, Rochester, Minnesota

MY REVIEW

This turned out way better than expected! The flavor of the meat is awesome and the peppers weren't soggy.

*I cooked this in a 5 qt crock on low for about 6 hrs. I almost doubled the lemon juice and spices for a little more kick and put a little water in as well to keep it from drying out.

I'll be making this a regular!

These were so easy and quick. I found you don't need to cook on HIGH, Low temp worked well for 2 hours. Added the peppers and onions and cooked 30 min on High, then another 30 min on Low. Served with salsa, sour cream, shredded Mexican cheese and avocado slices. Might try lime juice instead of lemon juice next time. Also used a mix of green, red and yellow peppers.
