Crock-Pot Pulled Pork Fajitas - Tender pork, shredded and then cooked with a variety of bell peppers and onions! The perfect weeknight or weekend meal!
People are always asking me what my favorite food is. Or to cook. I usually have to sit down and think about it because I love all kinds of food; however, fajitas are starting to stand out. I think I may have a favorite food now - fajitas. There is something about them that I absolutely love.
Maybe it's when you are sitting down at a restaurant with your loved one and before you even see the waiter or waitress, you can hear them screaming at you or also known as sizzling in the pan. I think it may be more about the experience in itself than the food. It's something you can add any kind of toppings you prefer, which can be fun and sociable.
By social food, I mean you can share the same dish with others and it's interactive. It's almost like appetizers in a way for me.
Call me crazy, but I love to experience food with all of my senses. Of course the best one being taste. I love biting into a fajita when the bell peppers and onions are still crispy. Others, like my husband, prefer the veggies to be wilted and tender. Not me.
What about you? How do you prefer your fajita vegetables to be: crunchy or tender?
