Grilled Fajita Vegetables and Veggie Burritos

My husband likes steak fajitas; I just like the peppers and onions. When I serve fajitas, it’s easy enough to cook plenty of vegetables and make my own meatless meal. That’s how this dish was created. It’s a great alternative on fajita night, and it’s also a terrific Meatless Friday dish on its own.

grilled veg burrito (3)Time Saving Tip:  slice the onions and peppers ahead of time; if you’re making another meal earlier in the week that calls for onions, do all the onion prep at once. Prep 2 or 3 large onions, using the biggest pieces for this recipe and chopping the small pieces for another dish.

Money Saving Tip:  fajitas are a great way to use up the peppers from a raw vegetable platter.

Feeding the Kids:  if kids don’t like cooked peppers, save some raw pepper strips for them to eat on the side. They can fill their fajita with meat and cheese.
