Cilantro Lime Steak Fajitas

It was fate really.  I was doing my very minimalistic grocery shopping for the week, (because we're still on a money diet and buying as little as possible) when I saw a halo of light glowing around a can of tomatoes that read "Mexican Lime Cilantro Tomatoes."  ♪♫Ahhhhhhhhhhhh......♪♫ (that's the sound of Angels singing by the way)

And so, like that, Cilantro Lime Steak Fajitas were born!  I already had steak in my cart, but I was going to go an Asian route until I saw those blessed tomatoes.  Oh, happy day!  The rest, is history really.  The steak and tomatoes met in my slow cooker, they cooked all day together and came out fabulous!

Have fun with your fajita toppings!  I picked up some sour cream and avocados, but the only kind of cheese I had in the house was Mozarella.....sounds weird I know, but it was good.  I highly suggest the avocados with this!  Mmmmmmmm!!!!

Set your toppings up buffet style like we did and let your kids decorate their own fajita.  I did that for Ella (but she was still feverish and didn't end up eating dinner....again, poor kid!) to try and entice her. When she's feeling well, she's all over that!

Here's the main event folks:

Cilantro Lime Steak Fajitas

Ingredients: (Makes 6-8 servings)
1.5-2 lb. Top Round Boneless Steak
10 oz. can Ro-Tel Mexican Lime Cilantro Tomatoes
1 small onion, halved and sliced
(optional) 1 Tbsp. Cilantro
(optional) 2 Tbsp. Lime Juice

Place your steak at the bottom of your crock.
Pour your can of Ro-Tel Mexican Lime Cilantro Tomatoes over the top.
Place your onions over the top.
This is where you can either start cooking your fajitas, or add the optional extra cilantro and lime juice.
Cook on LOW for 6-7 hours or on HIGH for 3-3.5 hours.
Shred your steak right in your crock and mix it with all your yummy lime/cilantro/tomato deliciousness!

Set out all your ingredients buffet style, assemble and enjoy!
