Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas Ingredients
Chicken breast is the star of the show here, everything else will be used to elevate that chicken to a new level. Some ingredients like the olive oil and the fajita seasoning will be used to cook the chicken, everything else like the frozen corn, frozen fajita veggies, and the black beans will be used to add flavor and spice to the dish.
These ingredients act as an extra blast of flavor when you add them. Think sour cream or shredded vegan cheese. You could add whatever you like but a few things that are recommended include things like vegan shredded cheese, tortilla chips, tortillas, butter lettuce, and salsa.
You don’t have to add anything if you don’t want to. But you should try some new things every now and then to see what works for you and what doesn’t.
