Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas
Good fajitas are all about properly tender onions and peppers. Cooking the veggies down on the stovetop can take a good long time. A slow cooker takes longer, but you don't need to stand over it stirring, and with this method that cooks the chicken in with the meat, your meat will be beautifully tender too.

1. Combine sliced onion and peppers in the bottom of a greased slow cooker. Lay chicken on top and pour chicken broth over. Sprinkle everything with the spices and lime juice. Cover and cook until chicken has reached a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees F, on LOW for 8 hours or HIGH for 4-6 hours.
2. When meat is done, remove chicken, shred with two forks, and stir it back into juices and vegetables. Divide filling evenly across the tortillas.
