I loved this. The seasoning is different from most fajita seasonings that I've made before and it was great. I added some sliced peppers and served some condiments on the side. Thanks for sharing this great winner, Marra. I can't wait to make it again.

As easy as this was to prepare, it provides such a wonderfully tasty Fajitas in the end. I made the recipe as written (no adjustments). It made for a wonderful dinner, which I served with some Spanish Rice and warmed refried beans. Thanks for a great recipe, Marra. We loved it.

Yummy meal, that was not only easy but has lots of that good flavor! Gotta love a slow cooker meal that’s a winner, and this sure was. Warmed the tortillas in the skillet, before filling them with the chicken, we each like various fillings, some of this and some of that; used red onion, sour cream, avocado, cheese, and tomatoes. I cut the chicken into small strips vs. shredded. Thank you, Marramamba, for sharing. Made it for FYC.
