Doing Things Just for Me

As you may know, I started my own money-saving blog called the Penny Pinching Housewife. Today I merged that blog site with my Journey as a Mrs Blog. I felt there was no need for having two blog sites and this way, I can write about things for me and not feel like I have to post DYI ideas or money saving ways instead of the subjects I want to talk about on a day to day basis.

Being a Mrs, to me, is all about pinching the pennies and being a Godly wife. That's what I really want to write about. So look out for my DYI posts and Penny-Pinching ideas through this blog site instead!

Fajitas for a Crowd

Sometimes my home feels like a revolving door.

Don't get me wrong, I love it!

However, often times we are feeding several people on a budget! Chicken seems to always be the way to go and it's so easy! I wanted to share my favorite Chicken Fajita recipe for all to try.

What I love about this recipe is you can easily change the quantity you are making to accomdate the crowd in the home. And as a bonus, you'll get everyone's tummy's rumbling as they smell the goodness slowly cooking throughout the house!

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
  • Tortillas
  • Fajita fixings
  1. Combine sliced onion and peppers in the bottom of a greased crockpot.
  2. Lay chicken on top of veggies.
  3. Pour chicken broth over top.
  4. Sprinkle everything with cumin, salt, and chili powder.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 4-8 hours (or on High for 4 hours) or until meat is shreddable.
  6. When meat is done, shred with two forks and stir back into juices. Serve meat mixture with slotted spoon on tortillas with your choice of fixing
Note that you can forgo the Salt, Cumin and Chili Powder for a pre-made Fajita Seasoning pack.
