Slow cooker veggie fajitas

I&rsquove been using my slow cooker more and more lately. I guess my laziness has increased? Who knows. What I do know is, fajitas are pretty easy to make. And fajitas in the slow cooker are so easy a two-year-old could manage (you might not get your vegetables cut into neat little strips like mine, but I bet they&rsquod make it into the slow cooker eventually).

By the way, it&rsquos fa-hee-tas, not fa-ji-tas. Just in case you were wondering.

(I know you weren&rsquot, but I wanted to elbow that reference in somewhere. Sorry)

By the way: what&rsquos the difference between fajitas and tacos? I literally have no clue. I know tacos are often eaten in hard shells, so I guess that&rsquos one difference, but you can get soft tacos too, right? Which are surely just fajitas? I don&rsquot know. Maybe what I&rsquove made here are actually tacos. It&rsquos all a mystery to me. I don&rsquot really mind though, because it all tastes amazing. If I was on death row (which&hellip hopefully will never happen, especially since capital punishment doesn&rsquot happen in the UK), my last meal would definitely involve some sort of Mexican food.

Soft flour tortillas, vegetables, cheese&hellip you really can&rsquot go far wrong.

If only I&rsquod had some sour cream to dollop on top, these would have been perfect.

Remember, the filling of a fajita (/taco? I don&rsquot know, I&rsquove confused myself) is just the beginning &ndash make sure you get loads of toppings on there too. I was pretty restrained with my fresh coriander and grated cheese, but I&rsquom thinking you could go for some big slabs of avocado, maybe some salsa&hellip yum.


Quorn Fajitas

We eat a lot of fajitas in our house, it is one of our favourite meals and I have been making them with quorn pieces for years so this was an interesting recipe to try. The main difference was that this recipe creates the seasoning from scratch whereas I would normally just use a packet mix to save time.

However, I have to say that the seasoning was very simple to make and tasty and due to the marinading it could easily be done in a morning for a quick meal later in the day. The marinade consists of lime juice and zest, cayenne pepper, sugar, cinnamon, cumin and oregano and I left mine soaking in for a couple of hours although the recipe suggests 30 minutes is sufficient.

The making of the fajitas is very simple, you just fry off some onion and peppers and then add the marinaded pieces, fry it all together for a few minutes and serve in the usual way with fresh salsa and sour cream to accompany them.

These are some photos of the process and the finished product:


I really enjoyed these and liked the citrus zing that the lime juice and zest had given to the marinade. My husband was not so convinced and almost immediately declared that he prefers the standard packet mix. He really is not a fan of citrus in savoury dishes though so I was not incredibly surprised.

I felt that it gave a fresh, balanced flavour which worked really well with the salsa, I very much enjoyed these fajitas and I also think this would work very well with steak strips instead of normal chicken style pieces.

In terms of ww propoints, these work out at 10 points per portion based on having 2 fajitas each with around a table spoon of reduced fat sour cream (I honestly cannot tell the difference between the full fat version and this) and fresh salsa.

The 10 points is broken down as follows: flour tortillas x 2 (5), quorn pieces (2), sour cream (2), oil (1). This is pretty good considering how filling and tasty they are and to be honest you could even get away with an extra tortilla for another 3 points and it would still be within a good points value for a main meal.

Chicken Fajitas Recipe

Lime Marinade:

  • juice squeezed from one whole lime
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, crushed and/or minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

Fajita Filling:

  • 2 chicken breast filets, marinated and sliced into strips
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1/2 onion, sliced into strips
  • 2 jalapenos, sliced into rounds
  • 1 tomato, sliced into chunks
  • cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • a dash of freshly ground black pepper

Separate Fillings and Toppings:

  • Spanish rice
  • refried beans
  • sour cream
  • guacamole (optional)
  • salsa (optional)
  • fresh cilantro (optional)

Preparation Instructions:

  1. At least an hour before cooking, prepare a marinade for the chicken using the ingredients listed above under "Lime Marinade." When the marinade is mixed, put the chicken in a shallow dish, pour the marinade over it (coating both sides of each filet), and refrigerate until cooking time.
  2. Prepare the rice so that it will be done close to the time that the filling is cooked. Set aside on a warm burner if done early.
  3. Meanwhile, wash all of the vegetables. Slice the red and green bell peppers into strips. Remove the skin from the onion and slice it into strips. Slice the jalapenos into rounds and the tomato into chunks. Remove the chicken filets from the marinade and slice into strips.
  4. Start the refried beans heating over low to medium low heat.
  5. Heat a skillet (preferably cast iron) until it is smoking. Add a thin coating of cooking oil oil, then the chicken and all of the vegetables except the tomato. Fry until the onion is just translucent and the chicken is firmed and cooked, then add the tomato and seasonings and fry until the tomato is soft.
  6. While the filling is cooking, warm the flour tortillas and prepare the other toppings. Serve the filling still sizzling, and combine it all in the flour tortilla wraps. Enjoy!

Note: For a vegetarian or vegan version of this dish, either prepare the recipe for these Roasted Vegetable Fajita Wraps or substitute a fake chicken product like Quorn Naked Chik&aposn Cutlets (or their Chik&aposn Tenders) and prepare it exactly as you would the chicken in this recipe. (Quorn products are not vegan, however. Check your packaging if you are vegan and using imitation meat products).
