Embarrassingly Easy Crock Pot Fajitas

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram: @Emily.Katherine.T.11 for tons of recipe ideas

Hey guys,

Today I'm going to share one of my favorite Mexican recipes.  Wait... it gets better, it takes 5-10 minutes to prepare.... it still gets better.... you make it in the crock pot. (Click here to feast your eyes on the best crock pot ever)

Here is what you'll need:

Ok, here is where it gets super easy.  If you do not have time to chop peppers and onions, you can substitute a bag of frozen fajita veggies.

Step 1:

Grease your crock pot, if you want, and throw in two, large frozen chicken breasts.

Step 2:

Chop your peppers and onions (or not if your using the frozen kind).  Dump peppers and onions in the pot.

Step 3:

Throw in your Rotel, can of chiles, taco seasoning, and garlic.  (I use the crushed garlic in a jar from Trader Joe's.  So much easier than chopping garlic, and it has a nice, strong flavor.)

Cover, turn on high and cook for 4 hours or low for 6-8.  Add paprika to taste during cooking.  

Step 5:

Before serving, shred the chicken with two forks.  Your yummy fajita filling will end up looking like this:

I like to serve these with chia seed tortillas from Trader Joe's, greek yogurt instead of sour cream (it tastes the same), and some shredded cheese.

I also make the rice that you can microwave in the bag in 90 seconds.  I mix all of that shiz together, and it is heaven in my mouth.

What are some of your embarrassingly easy recipes?


  1. I love easy recipes like this! It looks delicious! I make a super easy chicken pot pie. It's a rotisserie chicken shredded, a bag of mixed frozen vegetables, and 2 cans of cream of chicken. Mix them together and put in a pie shell and bake for about an hour. That's it!

  2. Yum!! I love recipies that can just be thrown in a crock pot and come out delicious a few hours later :) I'm going to have to try these!!

  3. Ok that sounds so super easy, and full of flavor! Yum!!

  4. Um that looks sooooo good and the best part EASY!!!

  5. Wow that is so simple and looks delicious! I have lots of favorite crockpot meals but my favorite and easiest meal is two chicken breasts in the crockpot topped with a quart of homemade salsa. Served over rice. :)

  6. I've made shredded chicken in the crockpot multiple times... why did I never think to add peppers/onions for fajitas?! SO genius! I will be making these asap!

  7. that looks amazing! totally making that later this week!

  8. I never thought to make fajitas in the crock pot! Pure genius! Thanks for sharing.

  9. Yum, I love crockpot recipes! As a matter of fact, I've got chicken breasts cooking in salsa right now - easy chicken tacos! Are you going to do a monumental half recap?

  10. This is my kind of recipe :) There is almost nothing I love better than what we call "Salsa Chicken" - two frozen chicken breasts, jar of salsa or can of rotel, can of black beans, can of corn, in the crockpot for the day... then served over rice or lettuce, in tortillas, or by itself. So good! Your version adds veggies... and that never hurts ;)

  11. That looks SO good!! Definitely going to try it out! :)

  12. Looks so delicious and I love an easy meal that can be ready and waiting for me when I'm done work. I can't get Rotel here in Canada so I'll have to add it to my list for the next time I go shopping in the States!

  13. This looks so good! I am a newlywed and am trying to break out of my comfort zone and try new recipes so I am adding this one to my list of recipes to try this month!!! Also I am a new follower as of today (I joined in on the Favorite Things linkup) Hope you have a great week!

  14. Nice! And crockpot, I love that. The flavours blend together so much better.

  15. Too funny! We had crockpot chicken fajitas tonight for dinner! Isn't it just the easiest!?

  16. I made this today. The only thing I didn't include were the green chili's since I'm a wimp when it comes to heat. Though next time I may throw in the peppers a couple hours after everything else so they'll be a bit more firm I'm quite happy with the results. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I have a yummy dinner ahead.
