It’s no secret that Mexican and Southwestern cuisine is my absolute favorite. I know on my health journey that MUCH of what I make and eat will have a little kick to it.

This kind of recipe excites me because its easy, practically makes itself and it makes a lot (we are just 2 people). I have plenty of leftovers for more meals later in the week.
5-6 Boneless Chicken Tenders or 2 large boneless breasts
6-8 oz of Natural Salsa (No sugar added) I use Trader Joes Medium heat
2 Cups of red, yellow and green peppers, sliced ( I used the frozen 3 pepper medley from Trader Joes)
1/2 Red Onion, Sliced
Hot Sauce (Optional)
Low carb wrap, tortilla or Pita. I used Josephs: Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread (These are amazing and very low carb, high protein and fiber) Purchased at Wal-Mart near under the deli case.
Place Chicken Breast into bottom of the slow cooker Add peppers, onions and salsa. Cook on low for 6 hours or High for 2-3. Shred Chicken when it’s done. Slice or spread rip avocado on your tortilla or wrap. Top with fajita mixture. Garnish with Cilantro and a splash of hot sauce if desired.
