Equipment

  • Large non-stick skillet
  • Chef knife
  • Cutting board

Ingredients
 

  • 3 tablespoons neutral vegetable oil ($0.33)
  • 2 green peppers, sliced ($0.51)
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced ($0.28)
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican oregano ($0.01)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt ($0.01)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oil in a large skillet over medium. Add onions and stir to coat in the oil. Then, add peppers and Mexican oregano.
  • Cook 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. The veggies should be tender but still crisp. Taste and season with salt to your liking.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately in tacos, burritos, bowls, and more. Happy eating!

Notes

  • Use cast iron — Although non-stick is more forgiving, cast-iron skillets give an incredible char that will yield the best copycat Chipotle fajita veggies.
  • Slice the veggies evenly — Make sure the onions and bell peppers are cut uniformly to ensure they cook evenly.
  • Don't stir too much — Don't stir the vegetables too much or the vegetables won't caramelize and char.
  • Don't skip the oil — To achieve the same flavor as chipotle, don't skip the oil. It provides flavor and prevents the vegetables from sticking.
  • Use a large skillet — To help everything cook evenly, don't overcrowd the pan. Use the largest skillet you can find!
  • Don't overcook — Fajita veggies should have a little crunch rather than be soft and mushy.
