Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas Recipe
When I started reading through the recipe, I noticed it called for a packet of fajita seasoning. A few years ago, I left processes seasoning packets behind. Not just because of the preservatives and other unpronounceable ingredients they contained, but also because using the herbs and spices I keep stocked in my pantry to make my own seasoning is more frugal.
So I set out to duplicate Fajita Seasoning with what I had on hand:
- Garlic Powder
- Black Pepper
- Sea Salt
- Celery Seed
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 yummy 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 hope your family enjoys this dinner as much as mine does!
