A delicious warm weather favorite with a touch of heat!

While it’s true that soups, stews, and desserts are all things that lend themselves to the slow cooker on the counter, slow cookers can also be perfect for cooking in the summer, when you don’t want to turn the oven on.

Our Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas will give you the best of both worlds– a fix it and forget it food that is also a delicious warm weather favorite. One of the joys of slow cooking the chicken in this fajita dish is that it becomes delectably fork tender. And with some homemade blackening spice, it has a little heat too.
