Crockpot Fajitas


2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes with green chilies (check for low-carb options with no added sugar)
1 red bell pepper, julienned
1 orange bell pepper, julienned
1 green bell pepper, julienned
1 large yellow onion, halved and sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 1/2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
3/4 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp low-carb sweetener (such as erythritol or stevia)
For serving (Low-Carb Options): Lettuce wraps, low-carb sour cream, cilantro, salsa, guacamole, shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese



Pour half of the canned tomatoes with green chilies into the bottom of the slow cooker and spread them into an even layer.

Top with half of the julienned bell peppers and half of the sliced onions. Sprinkle minced garlic on top.

Place the chicken breasts on top of the vegetables.

In a bowl, whisk together the chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, ground coriander, salt, and pepper. Evenly sprinkle half of this seasoning mixture over the chicken breasts, then flip the chicken and sprinkle the remainder on the other side.


Add the remaining half of the canned tomatoes with green chilies, followed by the rest of the julienned bell peppers and sliced onions.

Cover and cook on HIGH heat for 3-4 hours or on LOW heat for 6-8 hours, until the chicken is cooked through, and the vegetables are tender.

Remove the chicken and cut it into strips. Discard 1 cup of the liquid from the slow cooker (mostly tomato liquid).

In a small bowl, whisk together the fresh lime juice and low-carb sweetener. Add this mixture to the slow cooker, along with the chicken. Season with additional salt to taste if desired. Gently toss everything together.

Serve the keto and low-carb fajitas in lettuce wraps and garnish with low-carb sour cream, cilantro, salsa, guacamole, and shredded cheese as desired.
