Busy Day Crockpot Fajitas

Busy Day Crockpot Fajitas

Some days you just know are going to be crazy, but even on crazy days the family needs dinner.

Enter the Crock-Pot.

I love meals whose prep consists of tossing ingredients into a slow cooker and pressing a button.

These fajitas are simple, yummy, and easy- and a healthy ending for a busy day.

Start with a layer of onions and bell peppers. If your family can handle extra heat, you can even add some jalepenos or other hot peppers. I had a gazillion banana peppers on hand, so I threw them in there.

Add a can of diced tomatoes or jar of salsa.
Layer chicken tenders or breasts(I used frozen) over the vegetables. Sprinkle with Cajun seasoning, a taco seasoning packet, or your favorite blend of spices.

There is no need to add water, as the moisture from the vegetables will be enough.

Cook on low for 4 hours.

Serve in warmed tortillas with your favorite toppings.


Personally, I like a bit of sour cream, shredded cheddar, gobs of salsa, and a generous sprinkle of fresh cilantro.


My little window box of cilantro should keep me supplied through the winter. I love fresh cilantro!

So, next time you feel a bit harried, consider an easy Crock-Pot dinner for a busy week night. Do you have a favorite slow cooker recipe? I’d love if you would share it! Post the recipe in the comments below or add a link to your site.
