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.

I bet you had no idea how simple these were to make yourself at home. I know I didn’t!

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 the olive oil in a skillet.

Step 3: Add the red onion, bell peppers, salt, and oregano and stir to distribute the oil and spices.

Step 4: Sauté the fajita veggies for around 8 minutes, stirring a few times, until tender crisp. Remove the vegetables from the heat and serve immediately.

From start to finish, these fajita veggies took just 15 minutes! We love using these to build a cauliflower rice burrito bowl with roasted sweet potatoes, guacamole, cherry tomatoes, black beans, rice, crispy tofu, and more.

I make homemade burrito bowls regularly for dinner because we love them so much!

I used a skillet to make these fajita veggies, but they would also be fantastic grilled if you have that option.
