Paleo Crock Pot Fajitas

  • 1- 3lb (more or less is fine) chuck roast or any beef roast of your preference
  •  4-8 oz Green chilies (use a smaller can if the roast is less then 3 pounds and use the larger can if the roast is 3 pounds or larger.  You can use the larger can if you like it spicy for any size roast) Optional- 1 diced jalapeno or 2 Serrano peppers diced.  If using fresh peppers, soak diced peppers in 4 Tbsp water for about and hour
  • 1 orange bell pepper and 1 yellow bell pepper sliced into strips
  • I yellow or white onion sliced into rings and then cut the rings in half
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 3 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • Juice of 1 lime
Spray a crock pot well with cooking spray
Add roast
Place the peppers and onions around the outside of the roast
Pour chilies or the fresh peppers and water over the roast
Mix all dry seasonings in a bowl and using fingers sprinkle all over the roast
Cook on low for 6 hours (time will depend greatly on the size of the roast)
Drain the crock pot into a colander with a large bowl under the colander to collect the broth
Shred the beef or cut into very small pieces
Spray the crock pot again, add the meat, veggies and about 1/2 cup of the broth
Stir well and cook until only a little pink remains (or your preference of doneness) and the vegetables are tender crisp

Serve alone or over a salad
If you do not follow Paleo and just want to eat healthier meals, serve in a wrap, over rice or on a  potato

Serve with a slotted spoon to drain off any excess liquid if you are serving on a wrap, if using over rice or a potato include a little of the broth.

Optional Garnish- Avocado, Guacamole, Salsa, (Greek Yogurt is good if you do not follow Paelo)
