Prep 15 min
Plus Cooking time: 240 minutes
Makes 10 cups (2.5 L)



skinless, boneless chicken breasts
green bell peppers
jalapenos, or 2 tbsp chopped pickled jalapeno peppers (optional)
35-g pkg
fajita seasoning mix, or taco seasoning mix
3 tbsp
all-purpose flour
430-mL jar
chunky salsa, about 1 3/4 cups
toppings, such as sour cream, grated cheddar, sliced green onions and chopped fresh coriander (all optional)


  • Slice chicken into thick strips. Core and seed peppers. Thinly slice. Seed and finely chop jalapenos. Place all in bowl of a slow cooker. Sprinkle with seasoning and flour, then stir to evenly mix. Stir in salsa. Cover and cook on high setting 4 hours or low setting 6 hours.
  • Spoon fajita mixture into bowls. Top with sour cream. Sprinkle with cheese, onions and coriander. Great with warm tortillas for dunking or wrapping. Chicken keeps well, covered and refrigerated, up to 3 days or freeze up to 2 months. Defrost and reheat in the microwave. Or place in a saucepan with a little water to prevent burning. Stir often over medium-low heat.

Imagine delicious fajitas reinvented as a stew. Chicken and colourful peppers are simmered in spiced-up salsa in a slow cooker. Spoon into bowls and serve with tortillas or wrap in flavoured tortillas and dip into sauce.
