Recipe: Oven Baked Fajitas


Are you stuck in a vegetable rut?

Eating the same old salad and broccoli day in and day out?

Had so many carrots you’re going to turn orange?

Then you need a new meal idea!

Like my Oven Baked Fajitas! They’re super simple to make, and are full of delicious peppers and onions get you out of your vegetable rut. The simple prep steps are also great for getting kids to help out in the kitchen.

I made a big batch here so we’d have leftovers. Perfect for next-day lunches!
