Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas Recipe

My family loves all Mexican food.  So whenever I can, I try to indulge them with some of their favorite things to eat.  I also try to keep it as easy as possible for me.  That is why I enlisted our crock pot to help me out with our Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas Recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas Recipe

During the week it gets pretty hectic around our house.  Between getting breakfast for everyone in the family, making lunches, shuttling children to school, and putting in a full day at work, it is hard to plan ahead for dinner.  By the time the kids get home, they want to eat, and I don’t blame them.  Thus,  it is always helpful to have something prepared ahead of time.

Last week I used one of my favorite appliances, the crock pot so that dinner would be waiting for us when we got home.  With only a few simple ingredients, I was able to put together something that the kids and adults went wild over, this Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas Recipe.

The great thing about this recipe is that I actually had all of the ingredients in my house.  It only took me a few minutes to assemble everything in the crock pot and get out the door.  I went very basic, but you could customize and add anything that your family loves.

So what are you waiting for?  Any day is a good day to have a fiesta.  Pull out your crock pot and say Olé! and make a batch of this Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas Recipe.  Your family is sure to say gracias. -Scott

    I’m definitely saving this recipe! We are getting married soon and I put a crockpot on our registry. I can’t wait to try out some of these slow cooker recipes, and we lovvvvve fajitas in this house too. I have a question – do you leave your slow cooker on all day while you are away from the home, and do you have any concerns about this? I just have wondered how safe this is to do (we have 2 dogs in the house so I wouldn’t want to do something that may start a fire or something while they are home). What is your recommendation? Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    1. Hi Sarah. Congratulations on the upcoming wedding. I hope you get a crock pot as a gift. It makes cooking so much more convenient. You can absolutely leave the crock pot on all day when you are at work without worry of a fire. That is what they are designed for. Please use our site as a resource for your crock pot needs and let us know if you have any questions. We are always happy to help.
