Crockpot time! I got an A from the boyfriend on the paleo food scale, and he said if he was able to have a tortilla, cheese, and sour cream, they would have been the best fajitas he’s ever had. Sorry I mentioned those items but if your cooking for a family, then you can just add those to the dinner table and everyone is happy, including paleo eating YOU! And that’s who really counts anyway…
These I made during my lunch hour. Threw the chicken, spices, and salsa in the crockpot, shredded a little later, then just quickly sauteed the peppers. Boom, done!
- 2-3 chicken breasts (for more chicken just add a little more of each spice)
- 1/2 cup salsa verde
- 1/2 cup regular salsa
- 2 tsp of each: onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, paprika, chili powder
- Red, green, yellow bell peppers
- 1 purple onion
- 1 tomato
- 1 avocado
- Optional: lime and cilantro
- Romain lettuce leaves
Toss the salsa’s into the crockpot, then put the chicken on top. Add the spices and cook on medium. A few hours into cooking this, take 2 forks and shred the chicken. Put lid on and keep cooking. I started it around noon and took it out around 5.
Take your peppers, onion, and tomato and slice them and sautée in a little olive oil. I added a bit of the spices to livin up the peppers. When they are all soft and carmelized together they are ready!
Take the lettuce leaves and use them like taco shells. Add the chicken mixture, peppers, and top with avocado. A squeeze of lime and cilantro would have been great too. Make sure you have napkins because this gets a tad messy!
