CHEFIT: Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

Set it and forget it recipes are a MUST for my weeknight rotation! This recipe is my favorite way to create delicious chicken fajitas. They can be served traditionally with tortillas or as a fajita bowl with rice and beans. The combination of lean protein and antioxidant rich tomatoes and peppers make this healthy meal that's easy to make and tastes so good!
