Soup season has arrived!

I am always looking for a quick way to get a healthy dinner on the table and the slow cooker is my favorite way to go. I love being able to throw the ingredients together in the morning and let it simmer all day long.

Let’s be honest – the smell of the soup cooking all day long is one of the best smells ever!

Dump and Go Slow Cooker Recipes

Have you heard of “dump and go” recipes for the slow cooker?

Basically you “dump” all the ingredients in – no mixing bowl needed and you can literally prep the meal in less than 5 minutes.

These recipes are my favorite kind of recipes! They are perfect for busy parents because you can dump it in the slow cooker in the morning and dinner is ready when you get home.

To make this recipe even faster to prep, cut up all the peppers and onions the day before and keep them in the fridge until you throw it together in the crock pot.

If you are looking for some more dump and go recipes that you can make for your slow cooker (or even make freezer meals with them), check out this post of my favorite 8 Dump and Go Slow Cooker/Freezer Meal recipes!

Tips for making Slow Cooker Chicken Fajita Soup

  • spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray or use a slow cooker liner for easy clean-up
  • to make it hotter, add more chili powder or chop up a jalapeno
  • no time to make it in the slow cooker? Let it simmer on the stove top for 30 minutes and use cooked chicken to have this ready in no time!

Is brown rice healthier?

For this recipe, I used instant brown rice. You can use any cooked rice that you have available.

I generally use brown rice in any recipe that calls for rice, just because it is a little healthier. Brown rice is a whole grain, which means it contains all parts of the grain, including the bran and germ.

White rice has the bran and germ removed, which are the most nutritious parts of the grain.

White rice has very little nutrients that remain once those have been removed, which is why brown rice is a healthier option.
