Crockpot Chicken Fajitas (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Its a beautiful sunny morning and how can you not be in a great mood!? I am so ready for spring! I also have an exciting adventure ahead of me that I’ve been working towards the past month or so, which is why i haven’t posted much lately. I’ve been studying to get my Real Estate Brokers License and working 80+ hour weeks every week is exhausting! LOL So between working 2 jobs and doing classes every-nite…. the new recipes are few and far between these days. Only a few more short weeks though and I’ll be done and hopefully have time for some much needed baking/cooking and recipe sharing! Thank goodness for a helpful hubby and a crockpot! I’ve been resorting to the crockpot lately as it’s such a huge time-saver, and you really can’t mess it up! LOL Slow cooking produces such amazingly delicious food! And this is a great place to start! I  basically took my usual chicken fajita recipe and threw it in the crockpot instead! I have a freezer full of chicken so this worked perfectly! The flavor is wonderful and the best part? There’s plenty of leftovers! YES! Hope you all will give this one a try….wish me luck on my new adventure! Enjoy 🙂
