I wanted to make something super quick and easy for people who are busy or maybe they just don't want to cook. Cooking meals at home using as many whole food ingredients as you can is healthier than eating out or grabbing some fast food. Make a point to start doing this as much as you can.
This recipe is so quick, 10-15 minutes start to finish and you need absolutely no special skills. The only simple skill would be slicing veggies, that's it.
I would say most people like fajitas, plus you can do fajita Friday this week as one of your home cooked meals!
What you will need
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 Portabella mushrooms sliced thin
2 Peppers any color, sliced
2 Red onions sliced
2 Cloves of garlic sliced
2 Tbsp of Ancho chipotle pepper adobo, smokey chili paste
Water, if needed
4-6 Tortillas, I used 10 inches. If you have small children I would use a smaller size.
Sour cream (optional) Not really though, as far as I'm concerned
If you can't find the chili paste you can always fall back on Ortega's fajita seasoning. If you use this follow package directions.
What you need to do
In a large fry pan heat olive oil over medium heat.
Take all the veggies and slice them up. There is no wrong way to do this. Just try to make them the same size so they cook evenly.
Throw the onions and garlic and peppers in the pan first, cook for 2-3 minutes.
Then throw in the mushrooms and cook until they start to soften.
Add the chili paste and a small amount of water if the pan is a little dry. You want to have a little bit of moisture to create a sauce. If there is not enough moisture from the veggies add a little bit of water and take care not to add to much. You don't want it to be too watery.
As soon as the veggies are cooked to your liking, remove from heat and set aside.
Lay tortilla flat and add mushroom mixture. Try not to add too much sauce, you don't want it to get soggy. Top with vegan sour cream (optional) and then greens (also optional). Roll that sucker up and you're good to go. Top with some of that sauce from the pan and dig in. I'm not going to lie, these were a little messy so be sure to have a fork and knife ready. And a napkin. This will make about 4 healthy 10 inch tortillas and about 8 of the smaller size. Enjoy!
Take care of you
