ooh, these Easy Oven Fajitas are my new favorite thing!!
I love fajitas, but have had a hard time replicating their smoky goodness at home. I don’t have a grill or a cast iron griddle, so it’s been difficult to achieve that authentic fajita flavor. I’ve seen this oven method around the internet a lot lately, so I thought I’d give it a shot by making oven fajitas. SO glad I did!!!
For Easy Oven Fajitas, roasting the meat and vegetables in the oven gives them a slightly charred edge and a hard to replicate sweetness that you just can’t get in a plain old skillet. Even better yet, you don’t have to stand over the stove and babysit it while it cooks. Set it and forget it! YES. (can you tell how excited I am about this?)
Red, yellow, and orange bell peppers are usually significantly more expensive than green bell peppers, but you can use any mix that fits your budget. Despite using a couple of more expensive colored peppers, I used more vegetables than meat to keep costs low. The meat to veggie ratio ended up being perfect once everything had cooked down. If you want to make this Easy Oven Fajitas recipe vegetarian, try this Chipotle Portobello Oven Fajita recipe.
Oh, and although the ingredient list may look long, most of that is the fajita seasoning mix. If you want, you can just buy a packet of fajita seasoning instead, although they’re charging you a great deal for the simple act of stirring spices together.
