Slow Cooker Fajita Stew

READY IN: 7hrs 20mins
Recipe by SarahBeth

This is a great departure from the typical chicken taco soup for when I want a healthier mexican flavored dish. The tomatoes, please use your best judgement on the type of tomatoes -- I have used both the rotel tomatoes and just plain tomatoes depending on what's on hand :D But use them to the taste of your family. This is a chunky stew with a thin broth -- not thick like a chowder. Also I like to use Kathy's Fajita Seasoning Mix for the fajita seasoning! Mmmm love it! :D

This soup was quite good. However, there was a flavor I wasn't really fond of. I think it may have come from the packaged fajita mix, thus the no star rating. I used rotel tomatoes and added one diced jalapeno. I will try again but try the suggested zaar fajita seasoning mix.
