A couple of months ago, I shared about how I am incorporating meatless Mondays into my weekly schedule. Even though I am not a vegetarian, I have found great vegetarian recipes and products I love. One of my favorites is MorningStar Farms®. They have many Vegolutions that make it easy to add in vegetarian swaps to my regular diet and help me stay on track with Meatless Mondays.
Sizzling fajitas are a Texas favorite. It’s one of my favorite things to order when we go out to eat at Mexican food restaurants. When I saw MorningStar Farms® Meal Starters® Chik’n Strips and Meal Starters® Steak Strips at Walmart, I knew I had to try vegetarian fajitas! I turned it in to a Mexican themed night and even made mango margaritas to go with them.
Helpful hint: Now, through the end of January, you can earn $3 for every 3 MorningStar items purchased at Walmart with this Ibotta deal.
Vegetarian combo fajitas
1 Tbl olive oil
Bell peppers, sliced- I used 1 red, 1 green
1 pkg MorningStar Farms Chik’n Strips
1 pkg MorningStar Farms Steak Strips
Optional toppings: Mexican blend cheese, guacamole, salsa, and sour cream (lighten it up with Greek yogurt instead)
1. Heat olive oil in skillet on medium heat. 2. Add onions and bell peppers and cook for 10-15 minutes, until vegetables begin to soften. 3. Add chik’n and steak strips and cook for an additional 7 minutes (or until heated through) * 4. Squeeze lime over skillet to make it sizzle and serve immediately.
* To save time, you can heat up the chik’n and steak in the microwave and mix in with the vegetables just before serving. MorningStar Farms meals comes pre-cooked, so it is easy to save time for busy people like me.
