Ingredients

  • 1 1/2  pounds  chicken breast  sliced into very thin strips
  • medium red onion  sliced into thin strips
  • medium bell peppers deseeded and sliced into thin strips. See Note
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 5 tablespoons neutral oil like avocado oil or refined coconut oil
  • cloves  garlic minced
  • 4 tablespoons taco seasoning See Note
  • 1 1/2-2  teaspoons salt
  • spray oil like avocado oil

Garnishes:

  • shredded cheese like Monterey
  • fresh salsa
  • fresh cilantro chopped
  • red onion chopped
  • guacamole or avocado slices
  • sour cream or yogurt

Instructions

  1. Coat the bowl of the Crockpot with a little spray oil. Add the sliced chicken, onion, and bell peppers to the Crockpot.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil, garlic, taco seasoning, and salt. Pour over chicken, onions, and peppers and toss to coat well.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 4-6 hours, or until chicken is cooked through. Chicken should break apart easily, be firm, not soft or floppy.
  4. Use tongs to stuff tortillas or place on top of burrito bowls or a salad, then serve with desired garnishes.

Recipe Notes

I used one red, one yellow, and one orange bell pepper for a nice variety of color.

Make your own taco seasoning easily by following a recipe like this one.

Use gluten free, low carb, or paleo tortillas to suit your specific dietary preference.
