If you’re making your own homemade burrito bowls, burritos or chicken fajitas, then you’ll want to learn how to make these easy fajita veggies the right way. 

What veggies are used to make chipotle fajita vegetables?

The vegetables used to make this are bell peppers and onions.
  • You can use either green, red, orange or yellow bell peppers for this recipe. I used green, red and yellow.
  • You can use either red, yellow or white onions for this recipe. I used red onions.

What is fajita seasoning made of?

I make my own homemade fajita seasoning with a mix of salt, sweetener of choice, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, cumin and oregano mixed together in a small bowl.

Cajun seasoning and fajita seasoning are not the same. While both of these seasoning mixes have some spices in common, cajun seasoning contains some spices that are not included in fajita seasoning.
