You might wonder why I would be using a slow cooker for a dish like Chicken Fajitas that only take minutes to make anyway as I have shown in this recipe for stove top fajitas.

Well here is the story....

Our daughter made her Confirmation last month.  We were having a gathering at the house following the Mass and she requested that we serve Mexican food.  This means that everyone would be coming over at the same time we returned home and I didn't want to be cooking while guests were here.

So I made dips that could be made ahead of time and casseroles that could be put into the oven by my friend Karen who stayed back from the ceremony to prepare for the guests while I was busy.  I also made these wonderful chicken fajitas that were ready for us when we got home.


And that, my friends, is exactly what these small appliances that we love are for.  They make our lives much easier and relieve some of the stress in our lives.  That is a good thing.


So the next time you are cooking for a crowd or you just want to be able to come home to a delicious smelling house and have dinner on the table in a snap, try these fajitas.  You'll be glad you did.
