Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

I already have a recipe posted for chicken fajitas, but these aren't any 'ol fajitas; this recipe uses my favorite kitchen appliance which is of course.....my CROCK POT! Plus, they're relatively healthy.  I think.  I set out a Fixins' Bar and served up some ever-so-tasty Southwestern Black Beans.  What is a Fixins Bar, you ask?  It's stuff to dress up those fajitas, of course!  Shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sour cream, grated cheese, salsa, guacamole, chopped onions...you get the picture!

Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas
(Recipe from Stacy Makes Cents)




Ingredients:
1 yellow onion, sliced
3 sweet peppers, seeded and sliced (I use 1 red, 1 yellow, and 1 orange)
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp cumin
1 1/2 Tbsp chili powder
Juice of 1 lime
Tortillas
Stuff for fixins, diced, chopped, shredded and grated :)



Directions
1) Slice onion and peppers and place in greased Crock Pot.
2) Lay chicken breasts on top of veggies.
3) Pour chicken broth over chicken.
4) Add salt, cumin, and chili powder.
5) Squeeze as much of the lime juice as you can over everything. (I use the Hub's "man hands" for this if he's home)
6) Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours.
7) When done, take 2 forks, shred the meat, and give pot a good stir. (At this point, I turned off the Crock Pot and covered until ready to serve)
8) Set out your Fixins Bar, warm the tortillas, and everyone is on their own!
