You guys, slow cooker steak fajitas! As in the fajitas are made in the slow cooker!!!!
Yes, it’s a thing and to be honest, I was a little skeptical at first. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out but I had to try it out because as the weather starts to dip into the 5o’s and even in lower when w-w-winter rolls around… the thought of fajitas via not leaving the comfort and coziness of my kitchen, and let’s be real, pajamas is so very appealing.
So I did it. I loaded up my slow cooker with 5 EASY ingredients and set the heat to low and tried real hard to forget it. It was difficult because as the day went on and the aroma started circulating throughout my home, I was anxious to wrap those beef, onions and peppers in warm, soft tortillas and shovel them into my face.
I purchased a 2-1/2 pound london broil, sliced it into 1-1/2 inch strips. Next I sliced up a large white onion and a large red and green bell pepper. For the salsa, I used this salsa recipe, but this one would work just as well and I always, always have homemade fajita seasoning on hand.
First I poured 2 cups of salsa into my slow cooker.
Then I added in the beef and vegetables.
Sprinkled in the fajita seasoning…
…and tossed to combine.
Cover, set on low and let the slow cooker do its thing.
5 to 6 hours later, dinner was done.
So I warmed up tortillas and stuffed them full of steak, onions and peppers THEN I topped them with guacamole, sour cream and some cilantro.
Boom slow cooker steak fajitas.
Serve with a side of beer. 😉

Great idea! I can’t wait to try these.
I just made your recipe tonight, soooooo incredibly tasty! I made it with store bought salsa and fajita seasoning…this could not have been an easier recipe to execute and the result was delicious! Next time I will try making your salsa/seasoning! 🙂
I’m so glad! Thanks for coming back and leaving a review!
I made this for dinner last night. It was absolutely delicious! I love cooking from scratch and I recently found your blog and cookbook. So exciting! My 6 year old loved it too! I served it on rice and it was amazing! Thank you!
I’m so happy to hear it, Joelle!
Do you cook the steak on the stove top and put in crock pot or does the meat cook in the crock-pot?
I had my husband pick up 2 London broils as they are so inexpensive and not sure how much meat I would like to have to make these. I used one, tons of meat at 1.88 pounds. Followed everything exactly except I used 3 bell peppers, yellow, orange, and red (we are not a green bell pepper fan.) Cooked it for 71/2 hours and I have to say….WOW.
I used Pace hot salsa, we like everything hot. My husband was blown away too. And they are even better the next day!!!
Making another batch tonight and freezing some. Do you happen to have a chicken fajita recipe that is your favorite? My 1st time here and I will be joining your page. Thank you so much for those of us that love to cook homemade but work tons of hours and find it hard to get the time too.
I’m so glad, Wanda! Thank you for such a great review
This was delicious! I used flank steak and Trader Joe’s taco seasoning and it was so good! Highly recommend.
I’m using flank steak too. Did you still cook for 6 hours? Thank you!
Super easy and delicious. We will be making these again.
Is it still 6 hours if I’m using flank steak? Thank you!
