  • In a 1-1/2-quart slow cooker, stir together water, mustard, and fajita seasoning. Add stir-fry strips, stirring to coat.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours. If no heat setting is available, cook for 6 to 7 hours. Using a slotted spoon, transfer meat to a cutting board. Discard cooking liquid. Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds.

  • Divide meat mixture evenly among the warmed tortillas. Top with sweet pepper strips and, if desired, cilantro and/or green onion. Roll up tortillas. Using a serrated knife, cut filled tortillas crosswise into bite-size pieces. If desired, skewer with decorative toothpicks.

Tips

Tips: To warm tortillas, stack tortillas and wrap tightly in foil. Heat in a 350-degree F oven about 10 minutes or until heated through.

For easy cleanup: Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
