Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

I love fajitas! They are one of my favorite meals to eat, but I rarely make them because they are pretty time consuming. However, I came across this great recipe (can't find the site now) for crock pot fajitas and decided to give it a try. It was so simple to make and very yummy. The vegetables were a little bit soft, so I might try adding them a little bit later next time. Easy, yummy, perfect!
I took the picture with my phone so it doesn't look super appetizing but they were delicious.

Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

1 yellow onion, sliced
3 sweet peppers, sliced
1 ½ pounds boneless chicken breast or thighs
1/4 to ½ cup chicken broth, depending on preference (leave this out if you prefer a drier fajita filling)
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cumin
1 ½ tablespoons chili powder
Squirt of lime juice
Fajita Toppings

Combine sliced onion and peppers in the bottom of a greased crockpot.
Lay chicken on top of veggies.
Pour chicken broth over top.
Sprinkle everything with cumin, salt, and chili powder.
Give a nice quirt of lime juice over the top.
Cover and cook on low for 4-8 hours (or on High for 4 hours) or until meat is shreddable.
When meat is done, shred with two forks and stir back into juices. Serve meat mixture with slotted spoon on tortillas and top with guacomole, sour cream, salsa, cheese, and whatever else you want.
