I believe every busy homemaker could benefit from a few easy slow cooker recipes for those hectic days. I’m especially fond of the recipes that don’t require any browning first. That’s why this Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas recipe is a winner with me. It only takes a few minutes to prepare and then the slow cooker does all the rest of the work. And it’s delicious!

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 1 red or green bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 8-10 warm flour tortillas
- 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
- sour cream
- lettuce, tomato and guacamole as desired
- Slice chicken into 1/2 inch diagonal strips and place in slow cooker.
- Top with onion and bell pepper.
- In small bowl combine chili powder, cumin, salt, chicken broth and lime juice.
- Pour over chicken and cook on low 6 hours or until chicken is tender.
- Spoon several slices of chicken and sauce into center of each warm tortilla.
- Top with cheese, sour cream, lettuce, tomato and guacamole.
- Fold over and serve.
It’s nice to serve these with Mexican rice and perhaps a salad. But in a pinch, chips and salsa will do. The night I took this photo was one of “those days” and I didn’t even bother to cut up lettuce and tomato. They were still yummy, though.
I have a slow cooker which I’ve had for many years but I am also loving my Instant Pot. Not only is it a pressure cooker but it can also be used as a slow cooker. The best part is that it also has a sauté feature so I can brown meat in it first then switch to slow cooker. That means one less pan to wash…always a good thing!
