Fajita Veggies

Easy recipe for fajita veggies, just like Chipotle! Bell peppers and onions make a simple, flavorful, and healthy Mexican side dish that’s ready in minutes! Serve with your favorite Mexican recipes, such as my spicy black beans and cilantro lime rice


  • 4 onions, sliced into strips 
  • 4 large bell peppers (any color), sliced
  • 1 small package mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt + pepper 


  1. Slice your vegetables as desired. Some like them thick strips, some like thin strips, some like diced, some like chunks – cut them however you prefer.
  2. Pour oil in the inner pot of the Instant Pot. Turn the Instant Pot to sauté and heat oil over medium heat.
  3. Place the vegetable into the hot oil and cook, making sure to stir every few minutes, until the onions have some color and are just turning soft, about 10-15 minutes.



  • I like using white or yellow onions, but red onion is really good too!
  • Also, feel free to add other Mexican spices like oregano, Mexican oregano, paprika, chili powder, cumin, or onion powder. We just prefer the simple combination of salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
