    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!

    Yes, more meal recipes! Great again Derek.

    I made the fajitas for my family and we all loved it. Thanks!

    is 15 ounces the drained weight of the black beans?

      Total weight of the can (what the label says, they usually come in this size).
