My family loves these peppery veggie fajitas! Serve the fajitas with flour tortillas, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and I even put steamed broccoli on the side (so each can add broccoli if wanted).

Very delicious. The only alteration I made was the addition of cumin chili powder salt pepper and canned green chilis. Top with diced tomato and mexican cheese and you have a perfect healthy meal everyone will love. Read More

Good solid meal. Just put out a couple of different taco type fillers and boyfriends loved it. Next time I will use more mushrooms and onions and less peppers (would not fit in the pan!) Will make over and over again. Read More

These Fajitas were awesome. We used portabella mushrooms (which have a meat like texture) and we did not miss the meat!!! My 8 year old loved them, we will make them again soon! Read More

Excellent! I omitted the olive oil and cooked the vegetables with Pam in a nonstick pan then tossed them in a tortilla with chopped tomatoes and cheese. Such an easy idea with great flavor. Read More

This is an odd one because I like complex recipes. When I looked at it I tried it because it was easy but as I was making it I said to myself "this is nothing it is peppers and onions" and cooked it anyways. You know what...it was GREAT!! Total success in the fillings... The one complaint I have is that the ingredients did not mention tortillas. I ended up making an extra trip to the store. Read More

This was a great low cal/fat meal! I love veggies - I have made it twice already and am making it again tonight! I typically use 2-3 peppers (colors vary by availability) and 1 onion along w/ the green onions. I haven't used mushrooms yet but I am tonight. I saute it all in olive oil spray to make even healthier and add tons of lemon pepper! With a little fat free sour cream and salsa... Delicious - and filling - and so guilt-free! And the leftovers are great to take to work for lunch! Thanks much! Read More

Portobello mushrooms make the best fajitas...so much better than chicken. I make these for myself when my family has chicken fajitas but I always add more onions and I chop the mushrooms into nice big chunks for a meaty texture. Rather than use lemon pepper I sprinkle the mushrooms with a mixture of garlic powder chipotle ancho chile powder and just a touch of salt before cooking. I cook them separate from the pepper/onion mixture so they brown nicely. I absolutely love them. Read More

Very Good. I love fajitas but this recipe did not have much of a southwestern flare which I think a fajita should be. Since I did not have a fajita seasoning pakect I used about a 1/4 tsp of red cayenne pepper and approx 1/8-1/4 tsp of garlic salt onion powder paprika ground sea salt and ground roasted ancho chili powder. I also added an additional 1/2 tsp of lemon pepper after cooking the final 2 mintues in the instructions. For those that don't like spicy food adding the additional spices did not make the hotness overbearing likely due to the sour cream. Other condiments I served the fajitas with included store bought salsa chopped tomatoes and shredded cheddar cheese. Had I had an avocado I would have made guacamole. Oh and for the spicy food lovers I had a bottle of hot sauce on the table as well. Read More
