    I guess it would taste OK. But why spend 5 hours making something which is
    basically a fast food dish? I can whip up fajitas in 20 minutes. Just
    marinate the meat the night before or the morning of. I make a marinade out
    of lemon and lime juice, cilantro, onions, jalapeno pepper and sometimes
    papaya juice.

    Good fajitas are best when the vegetables are fresh and cooked crisp, not to
    a frazzle in a slow cooker. It's fine for stew but try the old fashioned
    way. You'll love it.

    Looks like a recipe off the packet of "dry fajita mix." The beef
    wasn't browned, nor were the peppers or onions.
    It does give me a nice idea of what to do with the piece of hickory
    grilled tenderloin that I stuck in the freezer. As soon as I am
    recovered enough I can cut it in strips and stir fry it with peppers
    and onions for fajitas.

    Ferjeeters.

    Crockpot fajita flavored soup, aka chili, not anything remotely resembling
    fajitas other than the fact that the ingredients are cut in strips.

    Just let it be what it is. Cut everything smaller, use stock instead of
    water, and no reason you can't serve it with the same stuff on the side.

    Ack. WHY??? Why would one put the ingredients in a crock-pot?
    Nothing about fajitas takes a lot of time.

    I've never really understood the fascination with crock pot cooking. I
    suppose it's a way for people who don't know how to cook or who have the
    false impression that cooking is difficult or time consuming to try to
    "cook" and avoid fast food and prepared foods. Unfortunately quite a few
    crockpot recipes rely heavily on processed ingredients which makes the
    end result heavy on fat, sugar and salt.

    The seemingly short lived fad of stores that guide customers through
    assembling a meal "kit" of pre prepped ingredients and sending them off
    with simple instructions for the final cooking would seem to be a
    variation on the crockpot "cooking for dummies" targeted at more
    affluent customers, and with healthier fare.

    Some dishes work well in them. Beef stew comes to mind. A lot of soups
    would work well too. I have a problem leaving them on all day while I am
    not home. But if you are OK with that then having a nice hot meal waiting
    for you when you get home is geat..

    But fajitas? No way. No need. They are best when the meat is grilled and
    the vegetables cooked fast and crisp. I make fajitas and Italian beef or
    sausage and peppers all the time. I just love the flavors. Can't imagine a
    crock pot for this dish.
