Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

Chicken fajitas that you can toss in the slow cooker! I make these extra cheesy and creamy and serve them over cauliflower rice. My family loves this low carb Mexican food recipe!

I feel like I’ve been so exhausted lately and I’ve finally narrowed it down to why…

Our dang dog.

We adopted a big goofy guy towards the end of summer and he is insanely playful and a little weird. Our other dog is 7 now so she’s mellowed out so much. This guy is 2 and he’s very much still a puppy.

He wakes me up just about every night with random barking. For 2 months now.

Someone make it stop.

Anyway, I’m exhausted all the time, probably from the barking, the playing, and the constant clean up of destroyed dog toys. I swear, he’s worse than a toddler.

All this exhaustion has led to me being on a big slow cooker kick lately. I’m honestly not sure why I haven’t used the slow cooker more often. Is there anything more convenient than tossing a bunch of ingredients in a pot and walking away.

These slow cooker chicken fajitas are beyond easy and so flavorful. I add in a brick of cream cheese to make them a bit creamier and more decadent.

How to make chicken fajitas:

You’re going to need chicken breasts, bell peppers, onion, garlic, salsa, cream cheese, and a couple of spices for these crockpot chicken fajitas. Nothing too difficult!

Slice the bell pepper and onion into thin strips, like you would for traditional fajitas.

Toss everything right into the slow cooker and cover.

Cook this on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours, depending on your slow cooker. Every crockpot cooks a bit different, so be sure to just keep an eye on these. When the chicken shreds easily with a fork, it’s done!

I like to serve these crockpot chicken fajitas over my cilantro lime cauliflower rice to create a low carb burrito bowl. You could also pop them in a lettuce wrap or low carb tortilla, if you prefer.
