Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 6 hours
  • Total Time: 6 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Let your slow cooker do the work in these tender and flavorful chicken fajitas.  A no-fuss, easy recipe the whole family will love with just 10 minutes prep time needed!


  • 1/2 cup chunky salsa
  • 11/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning (or fajita seasoning)
  • 3 large bell peppers (I used red, green and yellow) seeded and sliced into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced into 1/4-inch slices
  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • Desired toppings


  1. Pour salsa into the bottom of slow cooker insert and spread evenly.  Place chicken breasts on top of salsa.  Sprinkle evenly with taco or fajita seasoning.
  2. Place sliced peppers and onion over chicken.  Cover and cook on high heat for 3 hours or low heat for 6 hours, or until chicken is fully cooked.  * If tender-crisp vegetables are desired, add peppers and onion during the last 30-45 minutes of cook time.
  3. Remove chicken breasts and shred or slice.  Return chicken to slow cooker and toss with peppers, onion and juices to combine.
  4. Serve on tortillas with your favorite toppings.
