Hi guys!

I’ve professed my love of Mexican food here many times.  Salsa is basically my best bud and I am always on the lookout to make a healthier Mexican meal at home to cut back on the constant burrito cravings. The problem is I could eat this for dinner three nights in a row and STILL want a burrito for lunch the next day.  Fajitas, Quesadillas, Burritos… basically all different food groups in my mind.

I’ve even contemplated how an IV of salsa would work.  The struggle is real.

Luckily I have Vegetarian Oven Fajitas.  They are one of my favorite weekday meals because they are made on a sheet pan in less than 20 minutes!

Here’s why you have to try Vegetarian Oven Fajitas…

To make oven fajitas, I cut up the veggies and toss them in my super special vegetarian fajitas blend of spices.

You can use whatever veggies you have on hand but I love a combination of peppers, portobello mushrooms, onions and even zucchini!  Then bake them on a foil covered sheet pan for easy clean up.

You can go as healthy or as unhealthy as you wish with the toppings.  During the week I like to keep my food healthier so I choose whole wheat tortillas, fresh cilantro, lime, a little cheese, salsa and a smear of plain greek yogurt.

Your family can assemble their own vegetarian oven fajita favorites at the table… so everyone can get what they want.  To make these photos pretty (which I reshoot in March 2018!) I put this on a nice plate, but I often just stick the sheet pan in the middle of the table and both the Hubs and I just make ours from there.  Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple.

The vegetarian oven fajitas mixture also reheats well for lunches during the week and is super tasty in quesadillas and wraps too!  This fast and simple dinner is one you have to try.

    This is such a great idea! Made fajittas last week and stood at the stove, although I like the sizzle. I’ll be trying this next time to free up some time.

    These look SO GOOD. Adding them to my menu in the near future.

    I love Mexican food so burritos are delicious but not usually my first choice. I also love taco salads, nachos, fajitas, burrito bowls (more than burritos), and anything I can make Mexican so like a Mexican stuffed sweet potato, or Mexican “Cheese” Fries. I also add salsa to my eggs and breakfasts a lot of times to get my fix.

    • JulieWunder February 16, 2015 at 7:33 pm - Reply

      I totally try to make other random food Mexican-ish too. It holds over my cravings. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by today!

    Ooooooh what a good idea, I would have never thought to bake them, but thats clever! Good idea! fajitas are always a great option, but i just forget about them a lot! Thanks for joining us for meatless monday 🙂

    I love Mexican food too! I’d have to triple or quadruple the recipe for my family, but it’s worth a shot!

      Just use a couple of pans and it would be perfect!

    These look delicious! My husband thinks we need meat every night, but I’ve convinced him to do one vegetarian meal per week, so we will certainly be trying this one. Pinned.

    Those mushrooms look AMAZING!!! Give to me!! –

  36. Yum I could eat salsa everyday for every meal as well. I usually saute my veggies but this looks like an easier way to go.

      I kind of feel like we could grocery shop together… 🙂

    Such a great idea, I’ve never thought about putting the veggies in the oven… so easy! My family can’t get enough Mexican food, so this will definitely have to go on the list

    An IV of salsa….interesting, trying to picture how that would work 🙂 Coffee yes, salsa…..not so much 😉 I do like burritos, only if they are smothered in cheese and salsa goodness!

    • JulieWunder February 12, 2015 at 8:37 pm - Reply

      haha! I know. I like salsa and having cravings for it that often. 🙂

  39. Heather @fitncookies February 12, 2015 at 7:18 am - Reply

    We actually had fajitas again last night! I love Mexican and can eat it all the time! I do like meat, though, so I’d probably add some chicken or meat to these ones! Look delicious though.

    Mmmm Fajitas! I can never say that word without thinking of that one episode of Friends where Ross is cooking fajitas and he gets so drunk. Hahaha it’s one of my favorites!

    • JulieWunder February 12, 2015 at 8:38 pm - Reply

      Haaaaaa! That one is awesome. I’m feeling the need to find some Friends on tv!

  41. Jenny February 12, 2015 at 6:49 am - Reply

    Duuuuudeee. Yes. Mexican is my favorite and it’s SO ridiculously good even without all of the sinful stuff (in my opinion)…and one of the best ways to eat a ton of veggies! I love this idea and I’ve never thought of oven roasting fajita veggies! Genius!
