{ raising foodies cooking club }


Been on the road a bunch lately so I got a late start to Josyln's Raising Foodies Cooking Club but I'm on it now. This week I made this recipe from Stephanie (Steph Modo)'s blog - Slow Cooker Fajitas. It was super easy to make (it only took about 10 minutes of prep time getting it into the slow cooker) and it was delicious and healthy.

Slow-Cooker Fajitas, serves 8-10 people

1 1/2 - 2 lbs. flank or skirt steak, or boneless chicken
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 red or green pepper, sliced
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 TBS. fresh lemon juice (I used lime too)

warm tortillas
sour cream
avocado

Cut meat across the grain into 1/2 inch diagonal strips. Place in a slow cook cooker. Top with onion and bell pepper. In a small bowl, combine garlic, chile, chili powder, cumin, salt, oil and lemon juice. Pour mixture over meat. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 6 1/2 hours. Spoon several slices of meat with sauce into center of each warm tortilla. Fold over. Top with sour cream and avocado.
Yum.

{I let Samme help assemble the stuff onto everyone's tortillas and let her put a very generous heaping of shredded cheese onto hers. She liked practicing eating them without anything falling out!}
