Veggie Fajitas

Veggie Fajitas is one of the dishes which I make very often from a long time. I used to stir fry bell pepper and onions, place them in tortilla and top it off with guacamole. Then I started to look for a variation as I got bored of this dish. So as I started to look up for recipes, I stumbled upon this recipe. It looked very promising and hence I tried making it. We fell in love with the marinade and have been making it almost 2 times a week since then. 

Do give this a try and I hope you will enjoy as much as we do :-)

  • Corn or Flour Tortillas, small sized - 5
  • Guacamole (Using one avocado)
  • Poblano Pepper - 1
  • Colored Bell peppers, small sized - 2
  • Jalapeno,seeded -1/2
  • Red Onion, Medium sized - 1
For Marinade:
  • Olive Oil- 2 Tbsp
  • Lime juice (freshly squeezed) - 1 Tbsp
  • Roasted Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Red Chilli powder - To taste
  • Salt & Pepper - To taste
Note: Taste the marinade and add more lime juice or spice powder, if desired. 
            You can also use portobello mushroom along with the peppers. But make sure you marinate the mushrooms in a different bowl and saute it separately. This is because mushroom has way too much moisture and makes the other veggies soggy.


Chop the onion, bell peppers, poblano and jalapeño. You can slice it but we like it in cubes. Transfer the chopped veggies into a mixing bowl.

Preparing the marinade - Add all the ingredients listed under 'For Marinade' in a small bowl. Mix well. Marinade is ready.
Now add this marinade over the chopped veggies and mix it gently so that all of them get an even coating. Set it aside for 10- 15 minutes.

Meanwhile prepare the guacamole and stick it in the refrigerator until required.
Now heat a wide pan (I used cast iron pan). Once hot, add in the marinated veggies.

Saute it until a few pieces starts to get charred (you can saute the veggies until your heart desires. We like it little bit on the charred side). Then turn off the heat.

For Assembling: Warm the tortillas in a microwave or on direct flame. Then place little amount of the sauted veggie mixture on the middle of the tortilla. Then top it off with desired toppings like guacamole, pica de gallo, cheese, sour cream, lettuce etc. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas. Veggie Fajitas is ready!

Serve it warm. Above measurement serves two.
