When it comes to football, I am all about the food. Even more so than the game!
Which is why I'm so excited to be joining together with my fave food bloggers to bring you 19 amazing game day recipes. From appetizers to entrees, there is something for everyone ... make sure to scroll to the end of the post for all the recipes!
This year for game day, I'll be serving these Easy Roasted Veggie Fajitas. They have all the Mexican flavors I love, they're easy to make, and the recipe serves a crowd.
These Easy Roasted Veggie Fajitas are so tasty you won't want to limit them to game day. They're perfect for any party and make a delicious meatless dinner, too.
Unlike most vegetable fajita recipes, the veggies in my version are not sauteed, they're roasted in a hot oven. Which leaves you more time for the best part ... toppings!
Feel free to get creative with your toppings. I kept it simple with salsa, cilantro, lime wedges, and a simple homemade guacamole.
These fajitas are vegan, but you can add cheese or sour cream, if you like. This recipe can also easily be made gluten free by using corn tortillas instead of flour.
How to Make Easy Roasted Veggie Fajitas
So let's talk about how to make vegetable fajitas. It's super simple!
As far as vegetables to put in fajitas, you can get creative, but I like portabella mushrooms, bell peppers (use a mix of colors), and onions. I also added a poblano pepper to these roasted vegetable fajitas. The poblano adds more flavor than heat, but you can replace it with another bell pepper if you want.
Once you've gathered your veggies, slice them about ¼- to ½-inch thick.
Veggie Fajitas Seasoning
Then, you'll toss everything with a simple veggie fajitas marinade. It's made from a combination of oil, soy sauce, and spices.
Soy sauce is obviously not Mexican, but it adds a well rounded flavor to these Easy Roasted Veggie Fajitas that is delicious.
After coating the veggies with the marinade, you roast them in a hot oven, flipping halfway through.
You'll know the fajita veggies are done when they're browned on the edges and even a little charred in spots.
The roasted veggies are perfect for fajitas, but you can use them in other dishes, too, like burritos, tacos, or salads.
Vegetarian Fajitas Toppings
Once your veggies are ready it's time for the fun part ... the toppings! I've included a simple, but delicious guacamole recipe you're going to love.
Guacamole is a must, but here are some other roasted vegetable fajitas toppings to try:
- lime wedges
- shredded cheese
- salsa and/or hot sauce
- sour cream
I love this vegetarian fajitas recipe for parties. To serve, simply place everything on a platter or in individual bowls, and let your guests help themselves.
You could also fill the tortillas with the roasted veggies ahead of time, and then your guests would just need to add their favorite toppings.
If you're serving these Easy Roasted Veggie Fajitas for a crowd, you may want to double or triple the recipe. It's impossible to stop at one!
