I doubled this recipe, skipped the liners, used Pace Cilantro Lime salsa and homemade fajita seasoning. I DID NOT add the peppers, onion and garlic to the crockpot to cook all day. Instead, I sauteed them when I got home, then folded it into the cooked fajita meat. VERY good. I paired this with spanish rice and refried beans.

This made some of THE BEST fajitas I have ever had in my life. I did tweak one part of the recipe though. Instead of using store bought fajita mix, I used this recipe http://allrecipes.com/recipe/fajita-seasoning/detail.aspx and used 7tbsp of it in the recipe. Mind blowingly awesome!

We loved these fajitas. The chicken was so moist, tender & delicious. Plus there is nothing I love more than an easy crock-pot meal!

Fantastic recipe. I wolfed down two servings and am looking forward to re-heating it for lunch today. I cooked on high for about 3.5 hours. There was not a whole lot of liquid so I flipped the chicken/stirred a couple times to make sure everything was heated through. Didn't bother with the liner. Recipe is definitely a do-again.

Good for when you feel too lazy to cook. Next time I'd go for twice as many onions and peppers. There seemed to be a lot of liquid in the slow cooker at the end. Maybe I had runny salsa or something. Anyway, it's an alright recipe with potential.

Very good and easy!!! I followed the recipe to the T. I did cook on low for about 7 hours and the chicken just fell apart when stirred. These were so easy and and so good! I will definitely be making them again. My son and husband loved them as well!

The meat was really tender and the flavor was good.Only downside was that it tasted a little salty. Might be the fajita seasoning I used.Going to try a different one next time.Otherwise, this dish was really easy and satsifying.

I did a super easy version, frozen chicken on the bottom, sliced onion and bell pepper, a few fresh jalapeno slices for a kick, topped with a jar of salsa and sprinkled cayenne on top. Cooked on high for 5 hours, shredded it up with a fork and ate with corn tortillas :)
