Rainbow Slow Cooker Fajitas

Standard

I found this amazing recipe through my Pepperplate app. (If you have not heard about Pepperplate – you do not know what you are missing!) I will devote a separate post just on Pepperplate and all the reasons you will love it! Recipe title slightly adapted from the country cook, as seen on TastyKitchen.com, which is a fantastic recipe blog.

Rainbow Slow Cooker Fajitas
3 Bell Peppers, Sliced (Yellow, Orange, and Red)
1 Large Onion, Sliced
2 pounds Boneless Beef Sirloin Steaks Or Chicken Breast, Cut Into Strips

A few splashes Liquid Smoke (optional)
2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 teaspoon Chili Powder
½ teaspoons Salt
½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
½ teaspoons Black Pepper
½ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper

Place peppers and onions in a slow cooker. Top with the beef, lime juice, Liquid Smoke, and balsamic vinegar. Mix dry spices in a small bowl then pour on top. Then, top with Rotel. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until the peppers are cooked to your liking. Towards the end use tongs to mix. Servings 6-8

Serve with soft tortillas and any toppings you like. Ideas: fresh cilantro, diced tomatoes, sour cream, and cheese. I wish I could add a link to how wonderful this smells! Enjoy!
