If you enjoy fajitas, like they serve in Mexican restaurants, you will love this slow cooker fajita recipe. The meat is always very tender. Fresh cilantro gives these fajitas the extra punch that makes them taste authentic. This is a recipe from my Taste of Home Cookbook. I think that you could also use chicken instead of beef. Enjoy!




1 each medium green, sweet red and yellow pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
1 sweet onion, cut into 1/2-inch strips
2 pounds boneless beef sirloin steaks, cut into thin strips
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
8 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8 teaspoons minced fresh cilantro

Place peppers and onion in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Top with beef. Combine the water, vinegar, lime juice and seasonings; pour over meat. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until tender. Using a slotted spoon, place about 3/4 cup meat mixture down the center of each tortilla. Top with 1 tablespoon salsa, 1 tablespoon cheese and 1 teaspoon cilantro; roll up. Yield: 8 servings.
