This past weekend I came home from a fantastic girls trip to dinner simmering away in the crockpot.  My husband made dinner with the crockpot!  The crockpot.  I was shocked and super impressed.  My husband is very adventurous in the kitchen and isn’t afraid to cook and try new things, which I adore, but I just never imagined him using the crockpot.  And honestly it set my heart all a flutter!  I mean obviously it’s not hard to cook with the crockpot, but I was pleasantly surprised…this was a really nice thing to come home to!

He made Crockpot Chicken Fajitas that were so delicious that I had to share the recipe with you.  He even used my recipe for homemade taco seasoning for these fajitas, and made homemade guacamole…what a man!  It was a delicious dinner!

This would be a perfect weeknight dinner…they’re easy to prepare and very healthy.  Serve the fajita chicken with soft tortillas, guacamole, sour cream, salsa, shredded cheese and fresh cilantro.  Such a delicious dinner!

Here’s a leftover tip!

Fajita Soup Recipe

If you end up with leftover chicken, you can use it to make Fajita Soup the next day!  Just add some chicken or vegetable broth, extra taco seasoning to taste, some chopped vegetables if you like, then you have another meal for lunch or dinner.  Serve it with sliced tortillas, shredded cheese and sour cream…SO good!
