I love to be able to put ingredients in a slow cooker and come home after a busy day to a great meal! These fajitas were delicious. I realized I had used my canned tomatoes already, so I substituted a can of Rotel tomatoes and omitted the jalapeño pepper. My husband added chopped jalapeños to his, but I’m a heat wimp and didn’t add them to mine. I did need to add a little more salt than what was called for. Read More

I would definitely recommend placing them on a cookie sheet and broiling them for 20 to 30 minutes to add a crispiness to the meal. JUST SAYING Read More

Made it today (11/4/19) just as the recipe stated. Absolutely mouth watering. Everyone devoured it, including kids. My husband also had it on a delicious fresh roll and it was great. Highly recommend. I saw one review saying the tomatoes turned it into a soggy mess. It was definitely a very líquidy consistency but I got a strainer spoon and strained it before putting it on the tortillas. Read More

I made this recipe. However I used Beef fajita meat that s seasoned added my own seasonings I like & that I got from our City Market. I also chose to slightly sauté my bell peppers and onions and then add them to the meat. I also am not a huge fan of flour tortillas so I put the mixture over rice and my family absolutely loved it. I already had this idea in mind. But the slow cooker option makes the meat more tender. Thanks for the slow cooker idea Read More

It was good a little bland. Thinking next time to sauté the onion and peppers first to bring out more favor. Maybe a second jalapeño too as the one I used was not that big. Overall though it made a cheaper cut of meat good. I ll try it again. Read More

Could have used a bit more flavor but that could just be my personal preference since I like things with a kick.. I will add Rotel instead of the chopped tomatoes next time and see if that adds the little extra I am looking for. Read More
