Low Carb Crock Pot Fajitas

These low carb crock pot fajitas are one of my favorite easy low carb crock pot meals!  As with most of my recipes, no precooking is required!  Just throw it in your slow cooker and let the magic happen.  

This is great as is or topped with sour cream and avocado on low carb tortillas. Each serving of the fajita meat has approximately 9.5 grams of net carbs, but you could easily modify this recipe if you needed an even lower carb count.

Makes 6 servings
I always make 6 servings because I really enjoy this for leftovers the next day.

Ingredients:

Approx. 3 pounds of beef stew or cubed chuck roast
1/2 cup diced onion [6 g. net carbs]
4 cloves of chopped garlic [approx 4 g. net carbs]
2 medium green peppers (I sliced these and then cut them in half) [7 g. net carbs]
2 medium red peppers (I sliced these and then cut them in half) [9.56 g. net carbs]
1 small can tomato paste (6 oz) [24.55 g. carbs]
2 tablespoons of chili powder
1 teaspoon of oregano
1 tablespoon Beef Better Than Bullion paste (or 1 beef bullion cube) [6 g. net carbs]
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
pepper to taste
Directions:
Mix all of the ingredients together in your slow cooker and cook 8 hours on low or until your meat is pull apart tender. Drain the liquid from the meat and veggies. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Serve as is in a bowl or on low carb tortillas with sour cream and avocado.

    Trying this tonight…hope it comes out ok. I have a small crock pot….I added about 1 and a half cups of water to it all, since it seemed like it needed it.

    • Christine says:

      No, it didn’t need water. You don’t need loads of liquid in crockpot recipes. It will be more like fajita soup now. I would add additional salt and spices perhaps.

      • Christy R says:

        It didn’t damage it any and it kept the meat from sticking and burning to the sides of my small crock. It was delish but the meat tasted a little dry, maybe I cooked it a bit to long? I plan to make it again tomorrow actually. Thanks for this site, I’ve cooked several different meals already and they have all been yummy!
