Colorful Vegetable Fajitas

This recipe comes from AllRecipes. Instead of using red onion, I caramelized some onions (my favorite part of the dish!). I also added homemade fajita seasoning. Next time, I would also slice my veggies and then cut them in half so they don't overwhelm the tortilla. You can serve on tortillas with cheese, sour cream, and guacamole (or whatever your like) or make it into a fajita bowl sans tortillas. It would also be good with black beans added.

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
  • 1 yellow squash, halved and sliced into strips
  • ½ cup salsa
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon fajita seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt

  1. In a large skillet, melt butter and heat olive oil together.
  2. Add sliced onion and sautee until caramelized.
  3. Remove onions from pan and keep warm.
  4. Add peppers to pan and stir. Cover and reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in squash, salsa, cumin, and salt. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Serve hot.
