Easy Crock-Pot Fajitas (scd, paleo)

I like to consider the weekends my "days off" from cooking. Basically that means I try to get as much cooking done on Friday as possible, so that come Saturday and hopefully Sunday, I don't have to spend my weekend being a slave to the stove. Thus, when I come across scd-friendly slow cooker recipes I tend to try them out. Enter Crock-Pot fajitas. I found this recipe on Pinterest. I had everything to make it, or so I thought. I proceeded to slice and dice away and then as I opened the package of free-range chicken I smelled the most terrible smell. Not even the sell-by date yet and my chicken was spoiled. Gross. So what then? Thankfully I stock my freezer well. I threw in a frozen turkey breast and called it a day. Turned out really good, I'd say. And my non-scd husband didn't mind it either. I consider that a win.

4 chicken breasts ~ or 1 large turkey breast/ a few turkey tenderloins
1 onion, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 yellow pepper, sliced
1 lime, squeezed.
2 Tbsp. cumin
2 Tbsp. chili powder (read the label/call the company)
1 cup water

Throw everything into a crock-pot, veggies first. Turn on low heat for at least 8 hrs. Shred meat and dunk in juices. Serve.

*I suggest using taco toppings like hot sauce, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, etc. You could easily turn this into a burrito, even using lettuce wraps. (I'm gonna try that next time).


  1. Hey, just FYI, I think there's a type in your Hippocrates quote... Shouldn't it be "Let food BE thy medicine"?

    Anyway, great recipe! Have made this multiple times, and I mix it with guacamole that I got a recipe for from It's pretty much my favorite thing in the world. Keep it up!

    1. I've been messing with Google Translate and I think that somehow messed it up- it's fixed now- Thanks!

      Great idea to add the guacamole, sounds delish! So cool you have favorited this one~ thanks so much for reading!

  2. This looks wonderful! Thank you for sharing! I'm in the very early stages of SCD, and even these unpeeled cooked veggies are a little advanced for me right now. But I'm adding this to my recipe file for the future!

  3. I still make this. A lot. Thanks again.

    1. Depends on how much each person eats. 4 chicken breasts I would say would feed 4-5 people.
