Notes

  • This recipe is NOT a slow cooker recipe. If you are looking for the slow cooker version of this recipe, you can find it here:  Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas.
  • I cut my bell pepper slices a little bit thicker than I do for the crock pot version to help them maintain a good texture. If you cut them too thin, they might fall a part.
  • We have these electric pressure cooker chicken fajitas in our 6 quart Instant Pot, Crock Pot Express6 quart Farberware Electric Pressure Cooker, and 6.5 quart Ninja Foodi. You can make it in any 6-8 quart electric pressure cooker.
  • If you are using an 8-quart Instant Pot, you may need to use a half cup more liquid to make sure your Instant Pot will come up to pressure.
  • You can find more electric pressure cooker recipes with our Recipe Finder.
  • Check out all our favorite recommendations for cookbooks, slow cookers and low carb essentials in our Amazon Influencer Shop.
  • As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly. As a result, your nutritional content depends on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • Finally, all electric pressure cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline. Recipes should always be tested first in your own electric pressure cooker and time adjusted as needed.
