Ingredients
  • 2 pounds chicken breasts
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut in strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut in strips
  • ¾ cup salsa

  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
Instructions
  1. Place the chicken, onion, and peppers in a 6-quart slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the salsa and fajita seasoning (see ingredients above) and pour into the slow cooker. Cover with a lid and cook 6-7 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high until chicken is cooked through and tender.

Notes
- When filling your tortillas, use a slotted spoon or tongs and allow any excess liquid to drip back into the slow cooker. No soggy tortillas!
