Slow Cooked Chicken Fajitas

Cinco de Mayo is this weekend so why not make some fajitas? Or should I say how about you let your crockpot do all the work and you just enjoy it 🙂

I love slow cooked meals! The convenience of going to work and coming home to a cooked meal where I don’t have to lift a finger definitely appeals to me. Next time you go grocery shopping, you should consider getting slow cooker liners they are super cheap and totally worth not having to wash the crockpot!

These fajitas are soo good! They only need a couple of ingredients and are verry flavorful 🙂 Served with your favorite toppings, it makes for an easy and delicious meal 🙂

Here’s how to make them:

Place your sliced chicken, red pepper and onions in the crock pot 🙂

 

Now mix together all the spices 🙂 This makes for a yummy spicy chicken!

Pour the spiness all over your chicken

 

Stir to combine. Cover. Turn the know to low and you are all done! Finished! Wasn’t that super easy 🙂 Now walk away, go to work and in about 7 to 8 hrs your meals is done!

Now set up a little buffet with all your sides and warm tortillas and go to town 🙂

OOHH yes! Extremely juicy, tender and spicy! 🙂

 Now for the toppings I wanted some Spanish/Mexican Rice, refried beans, tomatoes and lots of cheese 🙂 oh and sour cream, but that doesn’t make for a pretty picture lol! Overfill your fajita so you can’t wrap it and you make a big mess, but you don’t care coz it’s soo goood 🙂

Slow Cooked Chicken Fajitas

Ingredients:

  • 1lb chicken breasts, sliced
  • 1 whole onion, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 cumin
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • pepper to taste
  • a couple of dashes Worchestire sauce
  • Serve with tortillas
  • Toppings: salsa, sour cream, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, refried beans, spanish rice, guac (yuk), or whatever you want!

Directions: Place the chicken, red bell pepper and onions in your crockpot. In a small bowl, whisk together the salsa, oil, cornstarch and the remaining spices and pour in the crockpot. Stir everything to combine. Cover and cook on low for 7hrs. Serve with tortillas and toppings of choice 🙂

Notes: I love to put the peppers and onions in the beginning because I like my veggies very extremely soft, and I love how to break down, but if you prefer you can add them towards the end of cooking time. It’s up to you!
