Sizzling Fajita Vegetables {Inspired by Chipotle}

Ingredients & Substitutions

Oil: While I prefer the richness of olive oil for sautéing, Chipotle uses sunflower oil for their fajita veggies. Feel free to use either according to your preference.

Vegetables: This recipe features classic green bell peppers and red onions, but don’t hesitate to personalize it with your favorite fajita veggies. Experiment with different bell pepper colors or onion varieties to suit your taste.

Seasonings: A dash of oregano and salt is all it takes to enhance the natural flavors of the vegetables. Dried oregano is recommended, but if using fresh oregano, adjust the quantity to about three times as much as dried, or approximately 3/4 teaspoon.

Can I Add More Vegetables?

Absolutely! While this recipe stays true to the traditional fajita vegetable mix found at Chipotle, you can easily incorporate additional veggies for extra variety. Consider including mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes, or even jalapeño peppers to elevate the dish further.

Can I Make these Veggies Ahead of Time?

Yes! Prepare a batch of these flavorful fajita veggies in advance to enjoy throughout the week. After cooking according to the instructions, allow the vegetables to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will keep well for up to 5 days.
