So easy and so delicious! Crockpot Chicken Fajitas come together with just about 5 minutes prep and a few simple ingredients. Throw chicken, sliced peppers, onions, salsa and spices together in the crockpot and walk away! These slow cooker chicken tacos are on my regular dinner menu rotation, and they’re always a hit!

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut in strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut in strips
  • ¾ cup prepared salsa
  • juice of 1 lime
  • flour or corn tortillas
  • optional toppings: tomatoes, cilantro, shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole
Fajita Seasoning:
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
  1. Place the chicken, onion, and peppers in a 6-quart slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the salsa and fajita seasoning and pour into the slow cooker. Cover with a lid and cook 6-7 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high until chicken is cooked through and tender.
  2. Remove the chicken from slow cooker and shred with two large forks. Transfer the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker. Add freshly squeezed lime juice, mix everything together and taste. Season with salt if necessary.

  3. Spoon the chicken mixture into heated tortillas using a slotted spoon or tongs and allow any excess liquid to drip back into the slow cooker. Add desired toppings and enjoy!
