FAQ #1: Can I use a different type of bell pepper for this recipe?
Answer: Absolutely! While the recipe calls for red and yellow bell peppers, you can certainly use green, orange, or any other color that you prefer. Or if you don’t have bell peppers on hand, you could try using other veggies like zucchini or mushrooms instead.
FAQ #2: How should I serve these fajitas?
Answer: These fajitas are delicious served on warm flour tortillas with toppings like guacamole, salsa, chopped cilantro, and lime wedges. You could also add some shredded cheese or vegan cheese if desired. If you’re looking to keep things low-carb or gluten-free, try serving the veggie mixture over cauliflower rice or quinoa.
FAQ #3: Do these fajitas freeze well?
Answer: While it’s best to enjoy these fajitas fresh for optimal flavor and texture, leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. To reheat them easily throughout the week, simply heat up a portion of the veggie mixture in a skillet until warmed through and then serve as desired. However freezing is not recommended as the veggies might become mushy upon thawing due to high water content.
