Lazy Fiesta Fajitas

We went to the grocery story with one thing in mind - EASY!  Loooooong day at work and neither one of us wanted a complicated meal.  I made some suggestions, and she shot them down.  Can I just say it would have been so much easier if our grocery store carried Daiya?  Damn you local supermarket!!

We finally came to a decision.  Fajitas.  Easy? Check!  Delicious?  Check!  Veggie goodness?  Checkity CHECK!  Melina first fell in love with fajitas at Mexicali Rosas.  I simultaneously discovered her love for noisy food.  If it sizzles and snaps and hisses with heat, she'll love it.

Decision made.  Or was it?  Walked over to the row of wraps and NO CORN TORTILLAS!   I think Melina got a little teary at the thought of her fajitas being out of reach.  She walked away, dragging her heels, while I looked through the rest of the bread.   Good thing I didn't walk away all mopey like she did because a worker brought out a whole box of the delightful tortillas.  Woo hoo!  Fiesta time!

This is not the most complicated meal.  You can always make it more complex with Sexy Salsa (see here) or guacamole.  Mmmmmmmm.

This is how we Fiesta.  Your turn Melina!

Ok-y dok-y, Denise!

Lazy Fiesta Fajitas

1 splash canola oil
2 fake chick'en breasts (or protein of your choice-2 cups of it)
2 bell peppers, julienned
3 cups sliced mushrooms
1 1/2 onions, chopped like half moons
5 cloves garlic, minced
fajitas seasoning, I used homemade, about a good tbsp of it
tortillas, we like the corn ones
tofuitti sour cream

 Heat oil in large pan or skillet. toss in onion, garlic and protein of choice. Saute about 5-ish minutes. Add the peppers and mushrooms, as well as seasoning. Saute till pepper is soft and it is a bit less juicy.

I slap some sour cream on a tortilla, put some fried veggies on it, dribble some salsa and there you have it, very, very lazy fiesta fajitas. So good. So lazy. So full.
