Veggie Fajitas

I made these easy and delicious veggie fajitas with a homemade mix of fajita seasoning. For the seasoning, mix up 2 parts of this “list” chili powder, paprika, salt, pepper, cumin, and oregano or Italian seasoning and 1 part red pepper flakes. If you’re measuring for one recipe, 1/2 t of the list + 1/4 t red pepper flakes is a good amount. Or you can make the seasoning in bulk, 2 T of each on the list + 1 T of the red pepper flakes. Then measure out about a tablespoon of the mix per recipe.

For the veggie fajitas, add the following to a skillet (cast-iron would work great for this) with 3 T olive oil.

1 carrot, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 bell pepper (red or green), sliced
1 small can chopped green chilis

Add the seasonings and let the first round of veggies cook and soften for at least 10 minutes.

Add 1 T of oil, 1 T of lemon juice, 1 lb container baby bellas (rinsed and thinly sliced), and 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes. Cook for another 5 minutes to incorporate the seasoning.

Serve on tortilla with your favorite fajita toppings…shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped cilantro, shredded lettuce, etc.

The beauty of this recipe is that you can use whatever veggies you have on hand in whatever amounts suit your tastes.

Cilantro!

  1. Aw, I wish I could grow my herbs indoors. But they wouldn’t survive long with a cat.

    • I can’t grow herbs at all because I have a brown thumb 😀 The cilantro (purchased from the store) is actually in a glass of water to help it perk up a little. Thanks so much for checking out my blog!
