When in Doubt –> Fajita Veggies it Out
Fajita veggies are not only delicious when served with chicken or steak fajitas, but also on their own. I love making extra fajita veggies to stuff in breakfast burritos or serve in a fajita bowl.
It’s something about peppers, onions, and fajita seasoning that can just jazz up pretty much any meal.
Today, we’re teaching you how to make perfect fajita veggies. Some even say these taste exactly like Chipotle fajita veggies (which I ALWAYS add to my chicken burrito bowl). Enjoy!

It really only takes 5 basic ingredients to whip up fajita veggies in your own kitchen.
- Homemade Fajita Seasoning: the key to amazing fajita veggies is making your own fajita seasoning. If you’re in a pinch, you can also buy a packet in stores, but do note that the packet has additives and a thickening agent in it.
- Bell Peppers: feel free to use any color of bell pepper. We love a good rainbow so we used 3 different colors.
- Onion: any color onion works. We love the pop of color a red onion adds!
- Garlic: we’re using whole garlic cloves to really add a flavor blast.
- Avocado Oil: avocado oil is great for cooking things at a higher heat. It’s also pretty mild in flavor. Feel free to swap for olive oil.
Make your own all-purpose fajita seasoning at home with just 6 basic spices! You can use our homemade fajita seasoning recipe on chicken, steak, veggies, soup, and more.
- Slice Veggies: use a sharp knife (or mandoline) to slice the peppers, onions, and garlic into thin strips.

- Season: season with the fajita seasoning and toss.
- Serve: serve in a tortilla, in a bowl, in a burrito, etc.
