Fajita Veggies (Chipotle)

These Fajita Veggies (Chipotle style) are sautéed with just a few simple ingredients, just like the ones served at Chipotle Mexican Grill. They are a great healthy topping for tacos and salads. Chipotle fajita veggies are also delicious as a vegetarian/vegan taco filling.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil*
  • 3 green bell peppers*
  • 2 medium red onions*
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat until the oil is shimmering.
  • Add the peppers, onions, salt, oregano, and pepper.
  • Sauté for 8-10 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked to your liking. I prefer them slightly tender and caramelized, but still crisp.

Notes

Olive Oil: Swap for any neutral oil, like canola, vegetable, sunflower, or avocado oil. 
Green Bell Peppers: Since this is a Chipotle copycat recipe, I use green bell peppers, but you can use whatever color pepper you prefer. 
Red Onions: Chipotle uses red onions for their fajita vegetables, but you can swap these for white or yellow onions.
