What You Will Need
- olive oil – a little bit in the skillet to help sauté the veggies.
- garlic – everything is always better with a little garlic to add so much flavor!
- yellow onion & red onion – option to use one or the other, but we love that both provide even more delicious flavor.
- bell peppers – we love to mix it up with all the colors (red, orange, yellow, and green), but feel free to use the ones that work for you!
- fajita seasoning – either grab some from your local grocery store or make up our own fajita seasoning blend.
- kosher salt & ground black pepper – a simple seasoning combination that is always a must!
How To Make Fajita Veggies
For starters, you can begin by mixing up your favorite fajita seasoning recipe.
Pro tip: you could sprinkle in a little cayenne pepper for an extra kick, if you want!
Now grab a large skillet, drizzle in the olive oil and bring to a medium heat. Add the garlic and move around in the hot pan until fragrant. Then add the peppers, onion, and sprinkle on the fajita seasoning.
What Veggies Are Good In Fajitas
We absolutely love sticking with bell peppers! And we love all the colors, from sweet bell peppers like red, orange, and yellow to the classic green bell peppers. Toss in some onions, we love both red and yellow onions, and you have the perfect batch of fajita veggies.
Sauté for about 10-15 minutes or until they are fork tender.
What Are The Components Of A Fajita
This is really up to you! Typically, a traditional fajita will include a protein option (like cast iron flank steak or chicken) with an optional fajita marinade, some sautéed peppers/onions, and a fajita seasoning.
Or you can make vegetarian fajitas and skip the protein to serve veggie fajitas. However, you could also add a salsa, sour cream, cheese, fresh tomatoes, black beans, portobello mushrooms, corn salsa, sliced jalapenos, or anything else that sounds good to you! Wrap it all up in your favorite flour tortillas or corn tortillas and enjoy!
