Planning a get-together with family or friends and want an easy meal? These Fun Fajitas for Four or More is the answer! It’s cooked in a slow cooker so you don’t have to pay attention to it until it is done, leaving you time for other important tasks in the kitchen.
Fajitas is one of my favorite Mexican food dishes. It was an experience to see my fajitas fresh off the flame coming towards me in a restaurant (back in the day) on a platter with “fixings.” After leaving Southern California and moving to Oregon, I realized it is a challenge to find good Mexican food, even fajitas.
It’s also a very economical dish because you don’t need a lot of expensive ingredients to make this recipe zing! The seasoning does all the work to make these chicken fajitas a favorite. Add your desired toppings and it’s a meal!
Just chop a few ingredients.
Place the chicken in the slow cooker and let it cook away!
I made this recipe with one large chicken breast, easily enough for 3-4 people once shredded and fajita toppings are added. Unfortunately, the fajitas were gobbled up before I could capture the finished dish, plated with toppings. Yes, that’s how good it is!
