Veggie Fajitas

Nearly the first day I went vegan, we made these. The small amount of ingredients, and quick prep time have made it a staple in our diet.

Ingredients (makes 4-6 fajitas):

white tortillas
3 green/orange/red peppers (mix colors for great antioxidants)
1 white onion
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp vegetable or canola oil
2-3 oz. vegan taco seasoning (2-3 packets)
1/4 tbsp cinnamon
salt & pepper, to taste
Frank's Buffalo Sauce (optional)

Remove seeds from peppers and cut into strips. Slice onion into long strips.
In large bowl, combine peppers and onion. Drizzle with oil; stir to coat. Pour all seasonings over veggies. Stir with large spoon or hands to coat the peppers.
Place all ingredients into a hot wok or frying pan. Cook for 7-9 minutes, or until onions are translucent and peppers are tender.

Warm/steam tortillas (I just place them between two large plates, and microwave for 25 seconds)
Wrap veggies in tortillas. Can serve with taco sauce, guacamole, or vegan sour cream.

My super-weird secret, is that I eat these with Frank's Buffalo Sauce. Either dip, or just sprinkle it into the open side of the fajita before eating. Try it. Trust me. ;)

To make it a full meal, serve these with some mexican rice and vegetarian refried beans.
