Slow Cooker Fajita Soup Recipe

Slow Cooker Fajita Soup Recipe
January is National Soup Month; it’s a great time to serve a warming new soup. Slow Cooker Fajita Soup is not only warming, but it is spicy and delicious. This soup contains all of the elements of a good Mexican fajita dinner- beef, peppers, onions, spicy seasoning, as well as rice and beans. Fresh flour tortillas make a good accompaniment, as well as stir-ins like tortilla chips, shredded cheese, lime wedges, guacamole or avocados, salsa, and sour cream.

Slow Cooker Fajita Soup is actually better the next day because the flavors are allowed to blend. If you can’t find salt free fajita seasoning, you can easily make your own. A favorite recipe for this seasoning is included below.
