I have a slow cooker for the same reason most people have one: it’s easy. But even though I like easy, I love flavor more. I won’t trade taste for convenience, which is why I really liked these slow cooker steak fajitas. The beef simmers low and slow, taking on the great flavors from onion, peppers and salsa, along with a really fantastic fajita seasoning.

Flavor-Packed Goodness

I topped these slow cooker steak fajitas with a very simple but flavorful sour cream mixture. All you do is take a little sour cream and add chipotles in adobo. In a crunch for time? Just use chipotle salsa instead of chopping chipotles. You can usually find it right by the canned chipotles in the grocery store.

The better the salsa you use the better these fajitas will be. Don’t opt for the cheap stuff. Last thing you want to do is ruin a good dish with meh salsa.
