Often times when I go out to a reatsaurant I wish I were home (besides the clean up part) because I actually like my food better. Cooking for years has allowed me to perfect tons of recipes and make sure they are simple healthy and affordable!

This is one of those recipes that is simple, healthy and affordable!

AND who doesnt like a good chicken fajita dinner!

You can use a fajita seasoning packet if you wish but I prefer using my own fresh organic spices. Organic spices do not have to be expensive and do not contain any of the gunk in seasoning packets or cheap spices.

Here is a link to the code of federal regulations concerning spices if you want to know more.

I forgot to thaw my easy chicken fajita freezer meal, now what?

No problem! Just thaw it a bit in warm water before cooking so that it fits into the slow cooker then go ahead and cook it! Freezer to crock-pot meals may need an extra 30 minutes of cooking so be sure to check your temp and cook chicken to at least 165 degrees.

Can I freeze cooked fajita mix?

I would not recommend freezing cooked fajita mix because the texture of your cooked peppers and onions will be quite unfavorable. But the chicken can be frozen cooked and used anytime.

How do you keep chicken fajitas warm?

Thats the best part about a slow cooker! It keeps your chicken fajita dinner warm until you are ready to serve.

How long can you keep chicken fajitas in the fridge?

Store this chicken fajita dinner in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-5 days.

Can you freeze fajita wraps?

Definitely! Tortillas will freeze beautifully!
