Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

Long time no post!  Okay, so here is one of our new favorite recipes.  I will admit that taste is not the only reason it is a favorite - I love that it takes almost no time at all and then it cooks all day and dinner is ready whenever!

We usually double the recipe because then we can eat it for several days, but it works just fine in these portions.

-3-4 chicken breasts, these can be frozen or fresh just make sure they are boneless
-about 4 cups of salsa (I never measure so this a guesstimate), I always use Pace Picante, we like medium heat but mild works great too
-1 green bell pepper diced up
-1 red bell pepper diced up
-1/2 an onion diced up

Place the chicken in the bottom of the crock pot.  Cover with salsa (this is where we estimate).  Throw the pepper and onion on the top.  Cover and place on low for 8 hours, or high for at least 4 hours and then low for 2 or more hours.  This can sit on low for up to at least 10 hours (it could probably go longer, but that is the longest I have left it).  If you want it to be chunkier then don't dice your veggies as fine.  When it is done then just use two forks to pull and shred the chicken, by this point it almost falls apart.  We just eat on tortillas with sour cream, cheese, and guacamole.
