Equipment

  • Cast iron skillet

Ingredients

  • 3 sweet bell peppers any color, membranes and seeds removed, then thinly sliced into strips
  • 1 large red onion peeled and sliced into half moons
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 ½ tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 lime juiced
  • Fresh cilantro optional, for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat the skillet. Heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat for at least 3-5 minutes, or until the pan just begins to smoke. Add 2 Tbsp of olive oil (or a lighter neutral oil, such as avocado, canola, grapeseed, or vegetable).
  • Cook the veggies. Add sliced peppers and onion to the hot skillet. Add 1 ½ tsp Kosher salt, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp garlic powder, ½ tsp chili powder, and ¼ tsp black pepper. Toss well, then walk away for at least 5 minutes. You want the fajita vegetables to maintain enough contact with the surface of the pan to char and brown.
  • Be patient and continue cooking. Repeat this same process: stir, cook for 5 minutes, stir, until the veggies are charred all over and tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Finish with lime juice. Squeeze the juice of 1 lime into the pan, then taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Serve immediately!

Notes

  • Cooked fajita veggies will keep for 3-7 days when in a sealed airtight container in a refrigerator.
