Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

Recently I decided to try making Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas. I love trying new recipes and Pinterest is a great place to find them. Several months ago, I saw a recipe for Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas pinned to my friend’s food board and decided to give it a whirl.

When I started reading through the recipe, I noticed it called for a packet of fajita seasoning. Ugh! I’ve really been trying to leave processed seasoning packets behind. Not just because of the preservatives and other unpronounceable ingredients, but also because using the seasonings I keep stocked in my pantry is more frugal.




So I set out to duplicate Fajita Seasoning with what I had on hand. Cumin, Garlic Powder, Paprika, Black Pepper, Oregano, Sea Salt, Celery Seed, Turmeric. I just started throwing stuff in on top of the chicken. And you know what? It was delish! A family hit!

I knew I wanted to share this recipe with you, but I couldn’t very well tell you to just start throwing stuff in. So the next time I made Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas, I measured out the spices and wrote them down. Still delish.

I will say that besides my husband, my family is pretty wimpy spice-wise. So I went light on the chili powder. As a result, these are pretty mild. If you want them spicier, you’ll want to amp up the chili powder. You could also throw in some red pepper flakes for good measure.

I like to serve these with plenty of shredded cheese, guacamole and sour cream. I should also mention that they make wonderful leftovers.

I hope your family enjoys this dinner as much as mine does!
