Slow Cooker Dinners: Beef Fajitas

I was having a serious case of the Mondays yesterday. Yes, I am well aware that it was Tuesday, but that did not change just how Monday it was. The day dragged, and by the time I was home from the gym, I was DONE. Wrap me up in a blanket, tuck me in, I’m ready for bed at 9:00 kind of done. Luckily, something in my subconscious must have thought I was going to end up this way because I had chosen to prepare a slow-cooker dinner for last night. The recipe below is another one of my mom’s finds. I honestly don’t know which magazine or publication it came from. All I know is that it is VERY easy to assemble, requires no pre-cooking, The other great part of this recipe is that it cooks for 8-10 hours on low, which makes it teacher friendly since it still has to cook even after work is over if it is set at 7 am!

Slow Cooker Beef Fajitas


  • 1lb flank steak, cut into 6 pieces
  • 1 green pepper, chopped in 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 packet your favorite fajita seasoning mix
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes with diced chiles


  1. Add the steak, veggies, seasoning, and tomatoes to the slow cooker. Stir to combine.
  2. Set the cooker to low, and cook, covered, for 8-10 hours.
  3. When ready to serve, stir again and make sure beef falls apart in shreds. Enjoy with cheese, sour cream, salsa, or more.
