Vegetable Fajitas Recipe

| 1 Comment

Fajitas is one of my favourite dishes, because its easy to make but also due to all the little side dishes and dips, it’s a very social meal to have.

I normally make chicken or steak fajitas but recently I have been trying to be healthier with my meals so decided to make vegetable fajitas and is now a favourite dish for me and my boyfriend.

If you fancy something different give it a go, and you can add or substitute vegetables by the ones you like or are on offer when you go shopping.
