Fajita Style Peppers and Onion

It’s cool to cold today, and I am thinking Mex-Tex for dinner.  Bean and cheese enchiladas, maybe a bit of Guacamole and Salsa to the side.  But I really want a bit heartier of a filling, maybe I will add in some veggies.

Cruising the fridge and panty I find Peppers, Onions and immediately I think Fajitas…  I suspect this will fortify the fillings and add a bit of a topping.

From Wikipedia:

A fajita (/fəˈhtə/; Spanish: [faˈxita]in Tex-Mex cuisine is any grilled meat that is served as a taco on a flour or corn tortilla.The term originally referred to skirt steak, the cut of beef first used in the dish.Popular meats today also include chicken, pork, shrimp, lamb, salmon, other types of fish, and other cuts of beef, as well as vegetables instead of meat. In restaurants, the meat is usually cooked with onions and bell peppers.

Since I’ll be sharing this with my roommates, I will forgo the meats and stick with just the peppers and onions.
