Scott's Firehouse Crock Pot Steak Fajitas

Okay, girls...this is a winner!
If ever there was the perfect recipe for feeding a crowd on a budget and when you are short on TIME, almost an order too tall to fill...this is it!
It takes minutes to make and it is divine.
My hubby combined his original recipe with YVONNE from Stone Gable's recipe and it is to.die.for!  Coming from a "happy without meat vegetarian wanna-be"...this is my favorite way to eat red meat!!!

Steak Fajitas

1 cup MEDIUM prepared salsa

1/4 cup deli sliced jalapeno peppers

3 cloves garlic, chopped or pressed

juice of 1 lime

1 tablespoon molasses

1 tablespoon liquid smoke

1 squirt of ketchup

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 large yellow onions, peeled, cut into half and then sliced

1 red bell pepper, sliced

1 yellow pepper, sliced

1 orange pepper, sliced...any combo of peppers, really.  Whatever you do:  DO NOT USE GREEN PEPPERS.  Trust me.  {nastiness!!}

3 pounds Carne Asada


*Combine salsa, peppers, garlic, lime, molasses, liquid smoke, ketchup, salt and pepper together.

*Place Carne Asada in the bottom of your crock pot.

*Cover with sauce.

*Make sure meat is covered in sauce.  Make sure the sauce is on the the bottom, too.

*Place onion and pepper slices on top.

*Put the lid on and cook on high for 6 hours...or until meat is falling apart.

*Ladle into a warmed bowl and enjoy!

Don't forget the tortillas, beans, cheese, sour cream, and hot sauce.

I made a large pot of rice and skipped the fajitas and made a stacki upi.  This is perfect for those with food allergies as they are able to top it with what they may have or for those picky eaters that don't like certain things!  Not that we have any of those in our family.  :}

To make this even easier, I cut the peppers and onions up the night before while I was cutting veggies for a salad...and just put it in a large bag so that I could just toss it in the crock pot.

****BLOGGER is no longer letting me add pictures.  Sorry about that.  My hubby will need to help me figure this out.


  1. Well, it sounds delicious!! Blogger is so frustrating sometimes, isn't it! Love to you sweet friend! xo

    1. It is delicious! I hope you try it! :}

  2. Boo blogger,would have loved to see your photo.This sounds wonderful,I love Yvonne @ StoneGable.
    Scott combo with her recipe is awesome.

    1. A great combination from two of the BEST! :}

  3. I just bought carne asada this morning and it is going in the crockpot now. Yum! Thanks for sharing :)

    1. You are welcome! You will have to let me know how you like it! :}

  4. Dumb question I'm sure, but can you buy carne asada prepared or do you make it ahead of time for this recipe? How many servings do you think it makes? It looks like a winner for one of our family gatherings next month. Thanks!

  5. Not a dumb question at all. I did not even know what carne asada was until my hubby bought it for this!!!
    You can find it in the meat department already sliced and ready to put into hour crock pot. We always soak our meat in kosher salt water overnight. This pulls a lot of "impurities" out. The carne asada he bought was just a certain cut...so there wasn't anything else that was on it...like spices etc.

    I am always hesitant to saying how many this serves but ours fed 14, I think...and we had leftovers. So, to be on the safe side, plan on 12. This is best served buffet-style as there is a lot of toppings which means a lot of passing...just FYI. Chips and salsa served at the table is perfect!

  6. Sounds great, thanks so much!
