I love to use my slow cooker any time of year. But during the winter, I especially love it. After working all day, it is nice to soak up a few minutes of sunlight on a walk with my family before the sun sets. So having dinner ready to go in the slow cooker allows me to steal those minutes with them instead of standing in the kitchen.
One of our family favorites is Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas. It is a no muss, no fuss kind of recipe. Just pile it all into the slow cooker and go about your day…no actual cooking required.
I hope you enjoy these chicken fajitas for a low carb, high protein slow cooker meal! What are some of your favorite slow cooker meals?
Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas
Put all ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours.
Top with shredded lettuce, shredded cheese or 1 tbsp sour cream if desired.
Two eggs and a piece of bacon walk into a bar. The bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve breakfast here.”
Good thing this isn’t a bar because life without eggs and bacon would be a sad life, indeed. But this isn’t your traditional eggs and bacon breakfast. This crustless quiche is simple, but is something you could serve for brunch.
The beautiful simplicity of a crustless quiche will do well for any crowd. If you are feeding a crowd, pair it with some plain greek yogurt and berries in small bowl.
Coleslaw is good for you, but only when made with certain ingredients. The added sugar and ton of mayo are not those “good for you” ingredients. But it is one of my favorite cook out dishes, so I set out to make a healthier version of this summer staple. Cottage cheese slaw is higher in protein and lower in fat than traditional recipes.
Cottage Cheese Slaw
Now, I’m not a huge fan of cottage cheese, but I have grown to tolerate it if I am really hungry. However, I was pleasantly surprised that the cottage cheese married so well with the cabbage. In my husbands words, this one is “blog worthy” (yes, I do make some “not blog worthy” dishes). I will definitely be making this version of coleslaw again.
No heat necessary for this cottage cheese slaw, which makes it ideal for hot summer months. Cottage cheese slaw can be your new cook out staple alongside grilled pork chops or baked BBQ chicken.
