Cooper is awaiting spring’s arrival!

 

 

It’s only fitting to mark the end of this horrid winter with a crockpot recipe.  Not that I put my crockpot away now ever, but it just seems like the right thing to do.  Confession: I made this recipe for lunch this week, but it smelled a little boozy (hence the beer in the title), so instead of taking it to work, I ate it for dinner.  Which reminds me that I’m not even sure if I posted our meal plan for the week.  Oh well!  I blame the holiday weekend!

 

Anyways…

Just a warning, use a beer that you like the taste of because while the booze may be gone, the flavor will remain!

Fajitas are always the best and although I like them when the BOY makes them on the grill the best, this is a great rainy day substitution.

 

What was your favorite crockpot recipe this winter?

Crockpot Beer Fajitas

 

Ingredients

1 onion, sliced

2 peppers sliced (I used green and yellow)

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 tasty and flavorful beer* (I used a random ale from our fridge, but I bet a Mexican beer would be great)

2 tbsp taco seasoning

Salt, Pepper, and Garlic (to taste)

 

Directions

Place all ingredients in the crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours until veggies are soft and chicken falls apart easily.  Shred the chicken using 2 forks and return to the crockpot to cook another 30 minutes.

Serve with tortillas and your favorite toppings (for me that’s salsa and avocado!).

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.

 

*Note: Feel free to substitute chicken broth, salsa, or water for beer!

  1. Ryan used an IPA to marinade chicken the other day and I swear I could have gotten drunk off dinner. It was STRONG! We usually use some cheap, crappy beer just for a little flavor, but, yeah. That was off the charts strong.
