The Best Slow Cooker Fajita Recipe

The Best Slow Cooker Fajita Recipe Recently, I’ve experimented making slow cooker/crockpot fajitas. The first time was not so great. I put the onion and peppers in too soon and they got too soft. This resulted in a soup-like consistency. The second time they turned out perfect! I made them for Cinco de Mayo for my family who all said they were fantastic. I paired them with my ‘famous’ Pina Coladas and the best gauc ever! You can find the recipes in this post.

First, take the most amazing fajita marinade that I’ve blogged about here (ingredients below) and put them in crockpot.

P.S. In case you noticed, yes I used the same main image on my original recipe as well as this one. They are the same recipe, just different ways of cooking—so I thought it would be okay :).
