Eating vegan? Like fajitas? Try this quick and easy vegetable fajitas recipe calling for red and green bell peppers. You can get these easy fajitas on the table in less than ten minutes—really! It may look like a long ingredients list, but it's mostly bell peppers and a few flavorful seasonings.

Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper (sliced into strips)
  • 1 green bell pepper (sliced into strips)
  • 1 onion (sliced thin)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (or to taste)
  • 4 flour tortillas (warmed)
  • Optional: 1/4 cup salsa
  • Optional: 1/4 cup non-dairy sour cream substitute

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. In a large skillet or frying pan, saute bell pepper and onion in olive oil.

  3. Add the garlic salt, curry powder, chili powder, and cayenne pepper, and allow to cook, stirring frequently, until peppers and onion are soft, about 5 to 7 minutes. Make sure to not overcook the bell peppers; they should be tender but not too soft. 

  4. Warm the flour tortillas in the microwave for just a few seconds or in the oven. We like to use a toaster oven for this so as not to turn on the big oven just to warm up tortillas. 

  5. Divide the peppers between the four warmed flour tortillas. Add a bit of salsa and non-dairy sour cream to each, if using, and serve immediately.

  6. Enjoy your vegetable fajitas with bell peppers! Yum!

Tips

  • Super short on time or short on fresh spices? Toss in a half to two-thirds of a packet of taco seasoning in place of the individual spices, because why not?
  • Keep the hot sauce nearby, if that's your thing, and sneak in some ​homemade guacamole, if avocados are in season.
  • You can add in some meat substitute, lightly browned seitan or even a bit of sauteed or fried or baked tofu, if you want something a bit heartier.
