Easy Crock Pot Fajitas

Monday nights can be a bit crazy around here. Lauren has chorus rehearsal on the other side of town from 5:00 until 6:00 so it's already late when we get home. The fastest to get dinner on the table this nights is to leave something in the crock pot so that we can serve ourselves as soon as we walk in the door. Brennan often helps out by fixing a side-dish or two to round out the meal.

One of our crock pot favorites is Beef Fajitas.

Easy Crock Pot Fajitas

1 beef roast (mine is usually about 2 - 2.5 lbs because I like leftovers)
1 onion, sliced
1 green pepper, cut into strips
1 red pepper, cut into strips
1 cup salsa
2 (or more) cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp cilantro
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
toppings: sour cream, guacamole, shredded cheese, salsa

Cut the beef roast into quarters and place in the crock pot. Cover with sliced onion and peppers. In a separate bowl (or large measuring cup), mix salsa, garlic, and spices. Spoon this mixture over the vegetables. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4. (My crock pot tends to cook faster than I expect; other crock pots may take 8-10 hours on low.)

Using two forks, shred the beef. It should fall apart fairly easily. Serve the meat and vegetable mixture in tortillas with a choice of toppings.

Lauren cannot have either corn or flour tortillas so she usually has her fajitas served over rice. This week Brennan warmed up some refried beans to serve as a side dish.
