Fajita Salad Bowl Recipe
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 red or yellow onion, cut into thin rounds
1 red bell pepper, seeds removed and thinly sliced
1 green bell pepper, seeds removed and thinly sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, seeds removed and thinly sliced
1/3-1/2 cup water
1 packet of Fajita Seasoning (your choice of brand, I use El Paso or whatever is handy)
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained, rinsed, and heated
2 large tomatoes, diced
1 Head Romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
2 avocados, sliced
Fresh lime juice, for squeezing over bowls
1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the olive oil. Add the onions and peppers and cook until tender, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add water, and fajita or taco seasoning. Stir until seasoning mixes in. Add the fresh lime juice, cilantro, and stir thoroughly. Remove from heat and set aside.
2. To assemble the fajita bowls, fill bowls with chopped romaine, then pile on the fajita veggies, black beans, tomatoes, lettuce, and avocado slices. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the bowls and serve.
Note-if you can’t find fajita seasoning you can use taco seasoning. You can serve tortillas on the side, if desired. If you don’t need the bowls to be vegan, feel free to add cheese, sour cream/Greek yogurt! You can also add chicken or steak to the mix! Go crazy and customize your bowls!
