I guess it would taste OK. But why spend 5 hours making something which is
basically a fast food dish? I can whip up fajitas in 20 minutes. Just
marinate the meat the night before or the morning of. I make a marinade out
of lemon and lime juice, cilantro, onions, jalapeno pepper and sometimes
Good fajitas are best when the vegetables are fresh and cooked crisp, not to
a frazzle in a slow cooker. It's fine for stew but try the old fashioned
way. You'll love it.
