Hello & Happy Tuesday!!

 

 

 

 

 

If there are two of my favorite things in this its world.. its tacos and fajitas!I personally love the flavor profile of anything spanish, anything packed with veggies, and of course lots of spice! So fajitas are just a no brainer. 

 

 

You can make them with a varieties of veggies, spices, and make the veggies in bulk for later use!

 

 

While you can make fajitas in a variety of ways depending on your preferences, I love this classic vegan version with marinated portobellos, homemade taco seasoning and effortless chimichurri sauce! Also, there is something about grilled veggies versus sautéed that really enhances the fajita flavor.
