Say hello to the BEST vegetarian fajitas you’ll ever try! And I know that’s a bold statement – but these really are SO stinkin’ good. All you need are a handful of simple ingredients, 15 minutes to cook, and you have yourself a quick & delicious meal.

If you are used to meat-focussed fajitas, fear not. There is no missing meat in this recipe! The black beans are loaded with protein and make this dish completely satisfying & filling.

My Favorite Veggie Fajita Fillings

  • black beans – I love using black beans in this recipe because of their flavor and added plant-based protein that makes this recipe filling and satisfying. I season the black beans with a little salt & garlic powder for extra flavor.
  • Guacamole – Guacamole not only adds delicious flavor to this recipe, but helps cool the spice from the peppers & onions, and also is another filling ingredient. You can’t go without the guac.
  • Peppers & Onions – These are a staple for any fajita recipe – for these peppers & onions I use a homemade seasoning recipe and roast them for 15 minutes.

How to Make These Vegetarian Fajitas – Step by Step

  1. Mix all of fajita seasoning together. Toss peppers and onions in olive oil and fajita season. Bake in oven for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat black beans on stove top for 3 minutes until warm with salt & garlic powder.
  3. When peppers are cook assemble fajitas – tortilla, black beans, peppers & onions.
  4. Add toppings to fajitas – guacamole, cilantro, splash of lime.
