Roasted Vegetable Fajitas

Roasted Vegetable Fajitas- flavorful roasted veggies make for a healthy and delicious fajita! | The Refreshanista

I love love love fajitas. My family had Fajita Night all the time growing up. It was one of my favourite meals: chicken, minimal veggies, tons of cheese, an overload of sour cream. That was how I liked my fajitas.

Although my dietary habits have changed A LOT {as in no more mountains of cheese and chicken}, I still have a love of fajitas.

More recently, I enjoy going to the Mexican restaurant down the street {which is the only Mexican restaurant in the city- oh how I miss the USA} and sharing the fajitas with my fiancé. While their Vegetarian Fajitas are pretty yummy, the veggies are delivered sizzling hot in a pool of oil and the meal is around $25 for the “Meal For One”!  So I have found myself leaving the restaurant feeling icky and wishing I would have spent my money better.

Fajitas are actually a very simple thing to cook yourself. Cooked veggies plus your favourite toppings, you can’t go wrong!

This fajita recipe is super delicious. A little spicy, majorly flavourful, and very healthy 🙂
