Slow Cooker Steak Fajitas

The game did not go so well for us New England fans, but these slower cooker fajitas were a big hit. The house smelled wonderful all day and they were very easy to make, with no cooking required outside the slow cooker. The lime juice and cilantro really give the sauce a very fresh flavor. You would never guess that the base is a jar of salsa. It also reheated wonderfully for lunch the next day. I will definitely be making these again.
