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.
What Veggies Do You Put in Fajitas?
With the proper Tex-Mex seasonings (see recipe card), you can use almost any vegetable in fajitas. Here are some of my recommendations:
How to Make These Vegetarian Fajitas – Step by Step
- Mix all of fajita seasoning together. Toss peppers and onions in olive oil and fajita season. Bake in oven for 15 minutes.
- Heat black beans on stove top for 3 minutes until warm with salt & garlic powder.
- When peppers are cook assemble fajitas – tortilla, black beans, peppers & onions.
- Add toppings to fajitas – guacamole, cilantro, splash of lime.
Extra Tips for Vegetarian Fajitas
- No black beans? You can use garbanzo beans, pinto beans, or white beans for this recipe in place of black beans.
- Serve rice or quinoa as a side dish for these fajitas.
- Choose good quality tortillas or make your own.
- Make this recipe gluten free by serving with GF tortillas or serve fajita ingredients over rice/quinoa.
