07 Jun Crockpot Fajitas

Fajitas. They are one of my favorite foods. I have really enjoyed Mexican food lately, and these hit the spot. Plus, it’s a crockpot meal. Easy. AND it is a great one to freeze or take to a neighbor as well. Feel free to serve with rice. I personally love adding diced avocados to my fajitas. Looking for a great side? Give my mango salsa a try.
