  • Wohoo! You’re back. Just gotta replace 40g protein with 40g carbs and this will hit my daily macros almost right on the head.

  • About time for some MEAL recipes, Derek!!! These look great. I was saying to myself I was craving fajitas & this would be a good, lower effort recipe.

    Thanks for another crockpot recipe that looks great! These are awesome. Nothing like being able to spend 10-20 min of actual prep & turn out a week or more’s worth of lunches!

    • You say there are 5 servings per batch…considering this is kind of like a Chili-type dish (measuring would be easiest by volume–cups, etc) do you have an estimate on what a serving is by volume? If you could post that kind of info on dishes like this, it would be awesome!!!!

      • Hey Chris! The most accurate way to figure out the serving sizes would be to weigh the whole recipe and then just divide into how many servings you want. I guess I could start putting estimates but there are a lot of variables so I try to steer away from it! Do you have a kitchen scale?
