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!
