The best skillet to make this meal in is a cast-iron skillet. I’ve made these in both a cast iron skillet and a regular skillet. Cast-iron just offers so much more flavor. It is probably due to the past flavors of other meals being carried over to the fajita ingredients. So, if you own a cast-iron skillet, then I recommend that you use one. If not, then don’t worry because they will still be delicious. Simply, follow this recipe. 

Typically I use a cast-iron skillet. However, this particular day, I was using my cast-iron to bake a batch of fudgy brownies. If you’re wondering how those came out, they were delicious and crispy around the edges. And, I ate every morsel throughout the week! Ok, enough about the brownies. Let’s get back to discussing these even more delicious Vegetable Fajitas. 

The ingredients that you will need to make this recipe are 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, 4 large bell peppers that are seeded and thinly sliced, 1 sweet onion that is thinly sliced, 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 3 tablespoons of water, and 8 medium flour or corn tortillas. To make these, first, heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Next, add the sliced bell peppers and sliced onions. Cook those 5 to 6 minutes. Be sure to toss them around so that everything cooks evenly. Then, add the taco seasoning, garlic powder, and water. Toss everything around with a spatula. Cook everything for 5 more minutes. Remove the vegetables from the skillet and place them on top of your tortillas. Your tortillas can either be room temperature or warm. Serve these Vegetable Fajitas with any desired toppings and sides. Finally, Enjoy your meal! It’s truly as simple as that, folks!

So, what do you think? Does this recipe appeal to you? If you are a meat lover, try this and see if you miss the meat. If you do, then that is an easy adjustment. Simply use this recipe as a base recipe and build upon it with any cooked meats that you would like. It’s that simple! However you choose to serve these Vegetable Fajitas, I sure do hope that they bring joy to you and your family! Enjoy both cooking and eating this meal!
