Zesty Fajita Bites
Nonstick cooking spray
1 1/2
pounds bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed
cup spicy brown mustard
cup water
teaspoons fajita seasoning or salt-free Fiesta Lime seasoning blend*
7 inches flour tortillas, warmed**
cup red, green, and/or yellow sweet pepper strips
Sliced green onions (optional)
Snipped fresh cilantro (optional)
Salsa (optional)
  1. Lightly coat a large skillet with cooking spray; heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until brown on both sides. Drain off fat. Transfer chicken to a 1 1/2-quart slow cooker.
  2. In a small bowl combine mustard, the water, and fajita seasoning. Pour mixture over chicken, stirring to coat.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-setting for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Remove chicken from cooker. Discard cooking juices. Using two forks, pull chicken apart into shreds; discard bones.
  4. To serve, divide shredded chicken among tortillas. Top with sweet pepper strips and, if desired, onions. Roll up tortillas. Using a serrated knife, cut each roll-up into five slices. If desired, skewer with decorative picks and serve with cilantro and salsa.

If using salt-free Fiesta Lime seasoning blend, add 1/2 teaspoon salt.


To warm tortillas, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Stack tortillas and wrap tightly in foil. Bake about 10 minutes or until heated through.
