Slow Cooker Chicken Fajita Soup


Today I am sharing with you a quick and easy slow cooker soup from Six Sisters’ newest cookbook the 12 days of Christmas.  I have become friends with the Six Sisters through blogging and conferences.  They continue to amaze me with all that they do and I love how they put an importance on family and traditions.  They started blogging as a way to keep in touch with all six sisters and it has grown into something incredible.  This is now their third cookbook that they have published.  They have such delicious and easy family friendly recipes.  I couldn’t wait to look through their newest cookbook and choose something yummy to make!

In the book they include 144 ideas for fun family traditions.  From homemade gifts to quick and easy dinners and desserts.  This book is packed with so many fun things.  I love that it shows that the holidays aren’t just about the gifts, but it is also about cooking for our family, sanity saving Christmas tips, and even shows ways we can give back.  It gave our family so many fun new traditions to try and bring the excitement of Christmas to our house!

They also include 12 Quick and Easy Family Dinners.  It is so important for our family to eat dinner together every night but sometimes difficult with the busyness of the holidays.  This is why I especially LOVE my slow cooker.  This Chicken Fajita Soup only took a total of 5 minutes to throw into the slow cooker.  It was able to cook all day and we had a creamy and delicious soup that was ready for dinner.  It is made with minimal ingredients but was packed with amazing flavor.  We topped it with cheese and all of our favorite toppings and this soup became an instant favorite.   My family all agreed that it was one of the best soups that we have had!  I am so glad that I have this cookbook because we will make this soup over and over again.  I know that it will become a family favorite at your house as well!

  1. This was absolutely wonderful!! I doubled the recipe and used the homemade cream of chicken recipe and used homemade chicken stock in place of the water. This will now be one of my go to soup recipes so thank you!!

  2. This was fantastic! I added a small can of green chilies and a chopped roasted red pepper (because I love them – not because something was missing) and it was a big hit with the family. I can’t wait to explore your site and find more great new recipes.
    Thank you again!

    1. I love this recipe, but I haven’t made it in awhile! How long of a cooking time would you recommend for cooking this in the instant pot? I no longer use my crockpot because I love my instant pot that much!

  3. This is a terrific soup; my family loved it! I used your homemade Cream of Chicken Soup and some homemade salsa. The soup tastes great topped with crushed tortilla chips. Thank you!

  4. This recipe is great! I always overdo things when it comes to slow cooker recipes so when I made it last week for my family of 4 (a 3 year old son who loves everything but only eats a little, and a 1 year old daughter who is a little picky but eats twice as much as the oldest), I added an additional can of soup and used 4 chicken breasts. It was amazing and we are having the frozen leftovers today over pasta instead of tortilla chips. I will definitely be frequenting your website often!

  5. Just made this and it was awesome! Everyone loved it! Definitely gonna look for more recipes on your blog! Thank you so much for this yummy recipe! This only thing I did different was use fresh cilantro, because that’s what I had on hand. 🙂

  6. PERFECTION! Absolutely wonderful! Love, Love, Love this soup! I used “two” cans of black beans and a smidgen more corn.Topped w/diced tomotoes, green onions, avacado, & sour cream.

  7. i made this for tonight’s Christmas Day dinner. I had two large crockpots of soup beef vegetable and this recipe. This soup was the first to disappear. I would definitely make this again. Even my grandkids loved it. Thanks for sharing such an easy and delicious recipe.

      1. This soup is SOOOOOO GOOOOOD and easy. I like the toppings too. I will do it again for sure. WOW WOW !!!! I like to eat with my eyes too and it’s beautiful to look at and most of all, eat 🙂

        Do you think I can freeze it ? Thanks

  8. I have a 6qt. slow cooker. This recipe doesn’t make a lot so I’m wondering if my cooker would be too big. I would love to try this soup so any input would be appreciated. Thank you!

    1. I used a 5 quart. You could use the 6 but you might have to reduce the cooking time a bit. The bigger it is the faster it can tend to cook.

  9. Can you freeze the soup and reheat it later? There is only two of us, so I know we will have a lot of leftovers. I can’t wait to try it! It’s in the crockpot now! Just a few more hours to go!

  10. Oh no!!! I got ahead of myself and added all the ingredients including the cheese. Dang it! Well… We’ll find out soon whether it works or not because it’s too late to separate.
    In any case, I tried this at a friend’s house and LOVED it! I’m hoping it turns out as well as it did then 🙂

  11. I was a little skeptical trying this recipe – it seemed too simple to be good! But this was a huge pleaser for my family. So delicious! I’ll definitely be making this again.

  12. I made this for dinner tonight. It was delicious!!! So happy to find simple recipes that taste yummy. Perfect for a rainy day. Thank you!!

  13. Loved this recipe! Cooked on high for three hours, subbed canned corn for frozen and used mexican blend cheese rather than cheddar. Also added a can of diced tomatoes with green chilis. Such a hit, thanks for another wonderful recipe alyssa!

  14. This was a huge hit! It was so easy to throw together and it ended up being absolutely delicious! My kids loved it. I served it with some cubed avocado, chives and sour cream. I can’t say enough about this recipe!!

  15. This was a hit with my family. It was super easy to throw together and it turned out perfectly. I served it with chopped avocado, chives and sour cream. Yum!!

  16. Hi! My family LOVES this recipe, I put it in the rotation every other week, even in the summer. 🙂 my question is how big is the serving size? My son is counting macros to prepare for a weightlifting competition, he needs to know the serving size do he can properly input it. Hopefully you can help! Thank you in advance. -Asha Lucero

  17. I’ve made this multiple times, it’s one of our favorites. The only recommendation I would make is after you eat the first bowl you’ll want another but don’t do it you’ll regret it. Its very filling. We have also tried it with rotel tomatoes to give it extra kick.

  18. I got so excited to make this and dumped everything in without spraying the out with cooking spray. Am I in for a mess later on?

      1. This is one of my favorite recipes! It’s easy to make, economical, and delicious! My daughter and I use this as a go-to meal for busy work weeks.

        Where can I find this type of tortilla strips? What I can find are much wider and longer. I like the idea of thinner and shorter.

    1. Of course!! I would highly recommend it. Just a little longer in the slow cooker then. I would add another 2-3 hours. Also, you will want to make sure that it all fits in the slow cooker before doubling it. Hope that helps! XOXO

    This is without toppings and as written. Could bring this down with a reduced fat cheese, home made cream of chicken, etc.

  21. This recipe is seriously so good. It’s now a staple at our house and we can’t get enough. The only change I made is I add a can of Rotel and fresh jalapeños. Thanks for the recipe!

  22. This is one of my all time favorite slow cooker recipes to date. I make this recipe at least every other month and more in the winter months. Love it so much.

  23. I loved this soup! So heart and flavorful. Do you think I could make it and then freeze it minus the cheese and toppings??? For an extra meal?

  24. I made this tonight and it was a hit! So easy and just delicious. I didn’t have black beans so I used kidney beans and I only had one can of cream of chicken soup so I used a can of cream of mushroom….it still turned out amazing! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

  25. Absolutely loved this recipe! We love a spicy kick so next time I think I’ll try adding green chili’s as others have mentioned. I already can’t wait for leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

  26. This is one of my favorite recipes! It’s easy to make, economical, and delicious! My daughter and I use this as a go-to meal for busy work weeks.

    Where can I find this type of tortilla strips? What I can find are much wider and longer. I like the idea of thinner and shorter.

  27. Hello,
    Thanks for this recipe, it looks delicious! Has anyone made it in the Instant Pot yet? I am wondering on times. Thank you!

  28. I want to double recipe and cook it in my new 8 quart slow cooker. How long do you suggest I cook it for? Thanks for the help
