You probably think of a hot, sizzling skillet when you think of fajitas. Most restaurants will splash water or juices from the meat on the skillet to give it that effect. Basically, the skillet is not an important aspect of fajitas. In fact, you could make crockpot chicken fajitas with frozen corn and get a similar, if not better result.
Crockpot chicken fajitas with frozen corn make for an easy delicious crockpot dinner that is a family-approved recipe. Fajitas are similar to tacos. You make the ingredients of the fajitas, serve with corn tortillas or flour if you have no other choice, and use the tortillas as an eating utensil.
You essentially build little tacos with the fajita filling. That makes it a fun recipe for the family that everyone can enjoy. It also makes cleanup a breeze in most cases. In fact, you can make fajitas even easier if you use this crockpot chicken fajitas with frozen corn recipe.
The recipe is super simple as most of the ingredients are frozen. It is the ideal version of a set it and forget it type of recipe. Most of the ingredients are frozen, tossed into the crockpot, cooked, and then enjoyed later when you are ready to eat.
That’s always been the beauty of a crockpot. The dump’n’go just makes cooking even easier. Especially for people who have no cooking skills at all. Basically, a crockpot turns a dish like fajitas into a dish that is as easy to make as toast. But if you are one of those who burns toast, maybe try this recipe while still at home.
Tips for Cooking Crockpot Fajitas
The first thing to ask yourself is if you enjoy crispier bell peppers in your fajitas or softer bell peppers. You can follow this recipe and get the softer bell peppers or wait until the last 30 minutes to add the bell peppers to the crockpot for a crispier bite.
Another tip would be to get creative with the serving options. We served over tortillas and in a tortilla bowl. But you can also simply serve it over a bed of rice or quinoa. In fact, that would be a good idea for meal prep if you want to use this as a lunch for the week.
Crockpot Chicken Fajitas with Frozen Corn Ingredients
There is absolutely nothing wrong with using frozen ingredients. Sure, fresh ingredients will taste better.
But you actually need frozen ingredients because the water will help steam and sizzle the ingredients as they cook. Boneless chicken breasts are important so you can shred it later.
Add the Olive Oil to the slow cooker and turn on low.
Place the chicken in a slow cooker with fajita seasoning to preference. You can use any fajita seasoning with this recipe; we love the Los Olivos seasoning and use 3 Tbsp of that with the recipe.
Cook on low for 6 hours. Add corn, fajita vegetables, and black beans.
Cook on low for 1-2 more hours.
Serve as desired and offer variety for everyone in the family. My husband loves using tortillas, I make a salad with it and the kids scoop it with chips.
