Crock Pot Fajitas

These are super easy and super delicious! It makes the perfect meal for the Mexican dinner night. I usually serve these with a variety of toppings and a side of Mexican rice and refried beans. Its a great way to get the kids to eat there vegetables! 

1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 large squash, sliced
1 large tomato, diced
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup of water
2-3 large bonless, skinless chicken breasts
1 package of fajita seasoning (or use homemade, recipe below)

Serving Suggestions:
Tortilla Shells
Shredded Lettuce
Sour Cream
Diced Tomatoes 
Mozzerella Cheese
Mexican Rice
Refried Beans


1. Cut up all your vegetables. [I like to slice most of them and have bigger pieces, but cut them however you like]

2. Put all of the vegetables into a crock pot

3. Pour the water in the crock pot [this will prevent the veggies from burning onto the bottom]

4. Put the chicken breasts on top [you can even put them in frozen!]

5. Sprinkle the seasoning mix on top of the chicken breasts

6. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours

7. Take the chicken breasts out, and shred them with 2 forks

8. Most of the water should have evaporated, but you can use a strainer and get the rest of the water out, if there is any left over

9. Mix the chicken back in with the veggies

10. Assemble and Enjoy :)

Homemade Fajita Seasoning:
4 tsp chili powder
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
Mix all of the ingredients together and store in a lidded container.
Use 2 heaping tablespoons for the recipe above.
