About this recipe

I loved the idea of this recipe the minute I thought about it. Especially because I love anything homemade and with a Latin twist. So I thought to myself: onions, peppers, beans, and homemade Latin seasoning mix. Yes, it will make fast and easy vegan bean fajitas.

Black bean vegan fajitas Ingredients

  • Peppers and onions. You can use red, yellow, or orange bell peppers. A mix of all of just one color. Same with onions, any type or color of onion will work.
  • Beans. I prefer to use black beans for this recipe, but any bean will work. Use Kidney beans, pinto beans, navy beans, or a combination of the three beans.
  • Latin spice seasoning mix. This seasoning is spicy, smokey and so good you will want to use it on everything. This mix has cayenne pepper (you could also use ground chile chipotle), cumin, salt, garlic powder, and dried oregano.

I made this with canned beans, which made this recipe even easier.  I  always buy GOOD canned beans, like the ones from Eden Foods. By far, it's always better to cook your own legumes but if you are in a hurry use canned beans.

How to make these vegan fajitas

Give this recipe a twist

  • Add portobello mushrooms if you want them to be “meatier.”
  • Serve with guacamole, a squeeze of fresh lime juice, fresh cilantro, and a spoonful of dairy-free sour cream or Mexican crema.
  • Make it a sheet pan dinner by roasting your veggies in the oven, then add your beans, mix and serve.

Here are some tips for buying canned beans:

  • As I always tell you, read the ingredients of everything you buy. Know your labels! Get items with ingredients that you know and you can pronounce.
  • Look for canned foods that are in a BPA free can
  • Try to buy organic beans
  • Look for canned beans that are vegan and have no more than 2-3 ingredients.
