Mexican-inspired food is my all-time favorite and when I can make it in my slow cooker I love it even more.
New kitchen gadgets come out all the time but I always stay true to my slow cooker. It's always been one of my favorites and I could use it every day.
I usually toss everything in around nap time and then a few hours later dinner is ready. It doesn't get easier than that.
These Chicken Fajitas made in my slow cooker save Taco Tuesdays in so many ways!
One, I don't have to rush and prepare a meal at dinner time when the whole family is already starving. Two, the wonderful smells of this cooking in the slow cooker all day just adds a nice pleasant aroma to the house.
- Chicken Breast (boneless and skinless)
- Bell Peppers (sliced)

How to prepare and make your Chicken Fajitas in the Slow Cooker:
Step One: Gather and prepare your ingredients. Place chicken in the slow cooker first, then top with veggies, diced tomatoes, and then the seasoning. Turn on Slow Cooker to High for 4 or 5 hours, or low for 6-7 hours.
- Tip: Many people ask if it is ok to cook raw chicken in a slow cooker. It is totally OK to do this. Just make sure the internal temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees or greater.
Step Two: Once the fajitas are fully cooked, take two forks and shred the chicken in the crockpot.
Step Three: Serve your fajitas! Enjoy this easy 3 step meal! Prepare/Cook, Shred, Serve! The slow cooker really is a lifesaver for an easy to prepare a meal!
When you are ready to serve you have limitless options. We love wrapping it in a burrito shell or serving it over rice.
We top ours with shredded cheese, salsa, and sour cream. One other great idea would be Chicken Fajita Nachos.
Place some tortilla chips on a baking sheet, bake at 400 degrees for about 3-5 minutes on a pre-heated over.
Take them out and then put your Chicken Fajitas on top. Top with my Slow Cooker Queso if you want!
