Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

An easy set and forget weekday meal bursting with flavor, colors and fun! With only five ingredients on top of your favorite fixings.

Here’s an easy one for a quick weekday meal. Everybody loves the sizzling grand entrance of fajitas while waiters and waitresses do the ‘fajita walk’. Because everyone loves sizzling anything. And while this doesn’t have the sizzle factor, it still tastes like it’s been marinated lovingly in all the flavors that make chicken fajitas taste so good.

And all this with just five ingredients. I was a little skeptical at first so I tried it a couple of times. And it worked out well. It’s fun, it’s colorful and really full of flavor.

An easy set and forget weekday meal bursting with flavor, colors and fun! With only five ingredients on top of your favorite fixings.

Think of this as the meat base from which you can pile your fixings on. Prep this is the morning or overnight and you’ll be rewarded when you come back home from work or wake up with a delicious aroma of bell peppers and spiced meat.

From there, it’s just a matter of getting your tortillas, beans, rice, shredded lettuce, cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream or whatever fixings you like! So this one’s for the busy bees of the world that still want something good to eat at home.
