If you have ever had Chipotle’s fajita veggies, you know how delicious they are!

Every time I get a burrito bowl at Chipotle, I ask for extra because I just can’t get enough.

This recipe is super easy to recreate at home and tastes just like the real thing!

What are Fajita Veggies at Chipotle?

Fajita veggies at chipotle are simply made with bell peppers, onions, oregano, oil, and salt.

While we used green bell peppers to mimic Chipotle, any color of bell pepper would be delicious in this recipe.

I had made vegetables for fajitas at home before, but it always seemed to be missing something.

When I found out on Chipotle’s website that they used oregano, I knew I had to try it.

Once the veggies started cooking it smelled just like the restaurant version and I knew I had hit the jackpot!

How to make fajita veggies

Step 1: Slice up the veggies into thick strips. You will need one large red onion and two green bell peppers.

Step 2: Heat olive oil in a pan

Step 3: Add the veggies, salt, and oregano and stir it up

Step 4: Sauté the veggies for around 8 minutes, stirring a few times, until vibrant and tender crisp.

Remove the vegetables from the heat and serve immediately.

We love using these to build our perfect cauliflower rice burrito bowl with roasted sweet potatoes, guacamole, cherry tomatoes, black beans, rice, crispy tofu, and more.

I make a version of homemade burrito bowls regularly and it is always a hit!
