Fajitas are the perfect combo of flavor and texture. With crunchy veggies and a spicy, tangy, smoky spice blend. They also double as a beautiful pop of color and are a great way to incorporate any seasonal veggies.

Fajitas are definitely a staple Mexican dish at my house because they’re just so quick and easy to make! They’re great as an entertaining dish too, but I love them best as a comforting homemade meal. Load them up with all of the toppings and fixings and you have yourself the most perfect taco or burrito that’s even better than the restaurants!

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 dried red chilies

  4. Mix in the lemon zest and lime juice, and your fajitas are ready!

  5. Serve them with warm tortillas and some avocado crema or guacamole, feta cheese, sour cream, salsa, sliced jalapenos and fresh cilantro. Enjoy!
