Vegetarian "or Not" Fajitas.

               Yesterday after a LONG day of "Spring Cleaning" and finishing up a few things around the house. I was SOOO in the mood for something light but flavorful and filling for dinner. So I came up with this recipe. Vegetarian "or Not" Fajitas. Tasty vegetable wraps. Bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms sauteed in a delicious sauce, served on a warm whole wheat tortilla and a fresh mayo.

Vegetarian "or Not" Fajitas. 

- 2 tbs. Olive Oil
- 2 Onions, thinly sliced
- 2 Green bell peppers, seeded and sliced
- 2 Red bell peppers, seeded and sliced
- 8 oz. Mushrooms ( I used Crimini) thinly sliced
- 1 Jalapeno, seeded and sliced
- 2 tbs. chopped fresh Cilantro 
- 1 lb. Roast beef. (If not making vegetarian style)
- 100% whole wheat tortillas. 12 ct.

- 1 tbs. Sweet chilli sauce
- 2 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
- 5 tbs. Ketchup
- 1 tbs. A1 sauce
- salt and pepper to taste.
about 1 tsp. of salt, 
and 1/2 tsp. of pepper.

Fresh Mayo:
- 3 tbs. Mayonnaise 
- Zest of 1 lemon
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 tsp. of chopped fresh Dill


1. Heat 1 tbs. oil in a heavy bottom skillet. Add the onions and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until softened. Stir in the green and red bell peppers, jalapenos, and cilantro and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes.

2. On a medium low heat, In a separate skillet add remaining oil, and cook the roast beef. Add the sauces, let beef marinade while cooking. Turn the heat to low and cook for another 5 minutes, add beef and sauce to vegetables. 

3. Mix ingredients for mayo in a bowl and set aside. 
Dry-fry the tortillas, one at a time, for 30 seconds on each side in a separate skillet. Spread 1 tsp. of mayo in the center on each tortilla. Divide the vegetables between the tortillas, roll up, and serve. 

You can definitely take out the roast beef if you prefer the vegetarian version better, or you can even replace it with tofu.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment. 

Hope you enjoy.
