Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

I have an amazing recipe for fajitas in the oven, but I was going to be gone all afternoon and unable to be coordinate dinner being ready in time.  So I thought, why not try the crockpot?  
Okay, this is so simple, I can't even believe I'm writing any directions!  One step - dump, stir, and turn your slow cooker on. Ha!  But seriously, these were easy and healthy plus I was able to make everybody happy. 

I had all our favorite toppings, lots of salad greens, tortillas, rice and beans.  My son made a burrito, my daughter ate everything in neat little piles on her plate, my hubby built himself a bowl and I made a salad.   For those of you doing the 21 ay Fix or Fix extreme, you can build this easily to fit your container allotment.  My salad was 2 green, 1/2 purple, 1 red, 1/2 yellow.  Be creative and have fun!

Happy Cooking!
