After a food-filled week, I decided to start this week with a veggie filled yet satisfying and flavorful meal for a meatless Monday. These veggie-filled fajitas are baked for ease and filled with protein-packed beans to round out this spicy and tasty dish!
I love fajitas, but standing over the stovetop to cook the veggies is not my favorite method of cooking fajitas. This baked version is so much easier and just as tasty!
Although there is a fair share of chopping veggies, the oven will do the rest of the work for you. I am a huge fan of prepping my weeknight meals on the weekend, so most of the work is done, but we can still enjoy a freshly cooked meal on a busy weeknight. If you want to get a head start, chop the veggies in advance and mix up the seasonings ahead of time as well.
Our house loves spicy. If your household is sensitive to spicy, omit the Rotel tomatoes and use canned diced tomatoes and leave out the cayenne pepper.
These Baked Veggie Fajitas are delicious on their own, but we love topping them with sliced avocado, sour cream, and Monterey jack cheese.
