The BEST Fajitas

If someone asked me what are the top 5 meals that I make most for my family this recipe would be one of them!

But this particular day I had steak left over from the night before and I was taking pictures of some salsas I was also making for dinner …

Crockpot Southwest Chicken Nachos

Crockpot Southwest Chicken Nachos

Many people LOOOOVE using their crockpot. And I will admit that some days I love using my crockpot too. But for some reason almost every single crockpot recipe I try comes out looking not so good. Most of them taste good, but before I put the meal on my table I usually have to explain to my husband that this is “a crockpot meal”…they are easy and delicious but not always so pretty! I received a fun package from Citizen Chef with a few of their sauces. I have the perfect recipe for their Pan Asian Orange Sauce that I will be posting soon …

Crockpot Tri-Tip Tacos

  I saw tri-tip on sale at our grocery store and decided to give it a try. First we marinated it and then put it on the grill. And it caught on fire! haha it was still way yummy after we cut off all the burnt edges. So I figured that that probably wasn’t the best way to cook it with the marinade I had tried. The next time I got it I forgot about the “fire incident” and tried it again…same thing happened! So the next time I tried the crockpot. And boy was it good! We just ate …
