recipe: crock pot pork fajitas

and now a recipe.  i am not julia child.  i don't want to be julia child.  i want to eat dinners that taste good, don't bore me and are easy to make and clean up.  if you're looking for a foodie, you're in the wrong place.  if you're looking for a crock pot recipe that is so super easy and tasty feel free to follow along. 

what you'll need:
1. pork (obviously).  we used a little over a pound of pork chops had leftovers after feeding two people.
2. fajita/taco seasoning mix
3. a jar of salsa.
4. frozen peppers and onions (thawed)
5. tortillas, cheese, sour cream, etc.

1. trim fat from pork
2. rub fajita/taco seasoning on chops
3. place in crock pot and cover with the jar of salsa
4. let it go for 8-10 hours on low
5. with a half hour to go stir in peppers and onions
6. serve it up adding toppings as desired

the fajitas are really delicious but quite messy.  i kind of missed the part of the recipe that said to use a slotted spoon to serve the fajitas.  there was salsa every where by the time i was done.  i thought the mild salsa was good but my husband said he could have used a little more kick.  all in all it was a winner.  it was nice to use meat other than chicken.  sometimes i'm afraid i'm going to grow feathers and start to cluck.

the link for the recipe is here.  i linked to the page with all the crock pot recipes in case you're feeling inspired.

i hope you enjoy!!
