  1. Have you doubled this recipe? How does it affect cook time? So excited to make! 

    • We haven’t doubled this recipe but it shouldn’t affect the cooking time. Just be sure to check your chicken to make sure it is fully cooked before serving!

  2. Can you use steak fajita mix instead of chicken

    • We’ve only made the recipe as directed but that shouldn’t be a problem. Let us know how it turns out Sandy!

  3. Could I use a homemade fajita spice??

  4. Which brand of fajita mix do you recommend?

  5. How many peppers do you use?? Doesn’t say

  6. Can I use frozen chicken?

    • I haven’t tried it with frozen chicken. According to Crock Pot, frozen or partially frozen foods require a longer cook time in a slow cooker than the recipe indicates for a stovetop or oven. Using an instant read thermometer is recommended to ensure meat is cooked through and tender. Frozen meats can be cooked in a slow cooker, however, it is best to use the following guidelines: Add at least 1 cup of warm liquid to the stoneware before placing meat in the stoneware. Do not preheat the slow cooker. Cook recipes containing frozen meats for an additional 4 to 6 hours on low, or an additional 2 hours on high.

  7. Do you need to add some sort of liquid to the crockpot??

  8. Running low on time, can I cook this on high?

    • While I have only tried it as written, you can usually convert 4-6 hours on low to 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 hours on high.

  9. These recipes look and sound absolutely delicious. Plus they look easy to fix. Im ALL about easy and cheap. Looking forward to fixing them.

  10. Do you slice up the chicken before placing it in the pot?

  11. Would love to try this
