My favorite Veggie Fajitas + a Clean Margarita Recipe!



Veggie Fajita Wraps 

Serves 4-6 

Homemade Fajita Seasoning:

3 T. chili powder

1½ T. smoked paprika

2 t. onion powder

2 t. garlic powder

2 t. ground cumin

½ t. cayenne pepper

1 t. dried oregano

2 t. sea salt

Cilantro-Lime Sauce:

1 c. plain, full-fat Greek yogurt

1 T. homemade fajita seasoning

1 clove garlic, peeled and finely minced

2 T. fresh cilantro, finely chopped

2 T. fresh lime juice

Salt and pepper, to taste

Fajitas:

2 T. extra virgin olive oil

1 red bell pepper, sliced thin

1 green bell pepper, sliced thin

1 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin

1 orange pepper, sliced thin

½ small red onion, sliced thin

1 T. balsamic vinegar

Salt and pepper, to taste

3 c. portabella mushrooms, sliced length-wise

2-3 T. homemade fajita seasoning

 ¼ c. vegetable stock, preferably organic

¼ c. fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

3 green onions, green parts only, sliced 

2 T. fresh lime juice

1 head Romaine lettuce, washed and separated into individual leaves 

Directions:

1. Prepare the fajita seasoning by combining all ingredients in a small bowl and stirring until thoroughly blended. Store any excess in an airtight container for later use. 

 2. Prepare the cilantro-lime sauce by thoroughly combining all ingredients in a medium glass or other non-reactive bowl.

3. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

4. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell peppers, onion, mushrooms, and balsamic vinegar to the skillet and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the onions and peppers are crisp tender. 

5. Add the fajita seasoning, and veggie stock to the skillet and stir to combine. Cook until heated through and excess liquid is gone, approximately 3-4 minutes. Season with additional salt or fajita seasoning, if desired. 

6. Remove skillet from heat and stir in the cilantro, green onions, and fresh lime juice.

7. To serve, spoon mixture onto individual Romaine lettuce leaves and top with a drizzle of cilantro-lime sauce. Enjoy!
