I love cooking, but do you ever get burnt out, especially around the holidays? Christmas is over and I am finally finishing baking all of my holiday treats and sides for the many dinner parties I’ve hosted. Now I am ready to create simple yet flavorful meals for my family.

The first time I tried this slow cooker chicken fajita soup I was hooked! The flavor is so delicious and it literally is one of the easiest meals to cook.

I love getting rotisserie chicken from Costco. Sometimes I buy multiples just for the ease and cost of having cooked chicken. I’ll shred it while it’s still warm and place it right into tupperware. So for this recipe I used 3/4 of a rotisserie chicken, I’m always generous on the meat. This made the soup literally a 5 minute prep.

I love soups that you can garnish yourself and this one was no exception. I filled platters of sour cream, avocados, cilantro, tortilla strips and diced tomatoes. This allows every person to individualize their soup to their liking.
