‘Tis the Season for the Slow Cooker


The slow cooker is probably my favorite kitchen gadget, especially in the wintertime. It’s the perfect solution for those of us that don’t have much time but enjoy a warm homemade meal at the end of the day. I used the slow cooker in this recipe so that the meat would turn out nice and tender, without any effort on my part.

Steak Fajitas



  • 1 pound steak, sliced
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 3 bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 packet fajita seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 lime
  • Tortillas
  • Additional toppings: cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, salsa

A quick plug for Aldi: If you haven’t been to this grocery store, you need to go! It’s a very different experience from Wal-Mart/Target/Publix, but the prices are unbeatable and I’ve never been disappointed with the quality of the products…where else can you get a pack of 3 multicolored bell peppers for $1.99? I haven’t gotten to the comfort level of buying meat from there yet, but maybe one day.


  1. Layer the ingredients in the following order: bell peppers, onions, and steak.




2. Top with lime juice, fajita seasoning, and salsa.





3. Cook on low for 6 hours.



4. Top tortillas with fajita mixture and your favorite toppings.



And for dessert?


We had oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (Recipe: http://twopeasandtheirpod.com/oatmeal-chocolate-chip-cookies/)

Note: If you like your fajita meat to fall apart and be shredded, then I suggest adding 1 cup salsa or even 1 can of diced tomatoes.
