Black Bean Fajita Bar | A Meatless Recipe


My mom and dad have turned vegetarian within the last year to help with some health issues.  One complaint my mom has with this new diet is the meals take much longer to cook.

I told her, that confused me a bit because my meatless meals tend to be some of the quickest I make.  That was certainly the case with this Meatless Fajitas Bar meal.  Not only was it quick, but also super easy.  To make it even better, the kids thought the meal was so fun.

The one downside of this meal is you will have more then one dish (pot) to wash.  However, my daughter who is in charge of washing the dishes like the meal so much she didn’t even complain.

Cuisine: Vegetarian Recipe
Serves: 8
  • 3 cans Black Beans (drained)
  • 1 jar salsa (16 oz) - I used milk salsa with corn and black beans
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 Avacado
  • Taco Seasoning - I make my own withthis recipe
  • Olive Oil
  • 3 Bell Peppers (Thinly Sliced)
  • 1 Large Onion (Thinly Sliced)
  • Fajita wraps
  • Toppings: Thinly sliced Lettuce, Shredded Cheese, Greek Yogurt and whatever else you wish
Black Bean Filling
  1. Add Black Beans into Pan and mix in ¾ bottle of Salsa and about tsp of Cumin. Change amount of seasoning depending on your taste.
  2. Turn on over to low and let it simmer fo about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally
Peppers and Onions
  1. In a seperate pan, coat the bottom with olive Oil
  2. Saute Onions and Bell Peppers
"Guacomole" Spread
  1. Peal and Core Avacodo.
  2. Dice into small pieces and mash
  3. Sprinkle in some Taco Seasoning to desired Taste.
  4. Stir together until smooth
Serving Fajits
  1. Place each item on table in seperate bowl and allow people to make up their own Fajita. One of my bowls included the remaining salsa
The great thing about this recipe is it can very simply be changed to your taste and what you have on hand.  I used red and yellow peppers because it’s what I had picked up on sale at Aldi and had quite a few of.  In fact, with the exception of the Salsa (which I had picked up on a good sale at Giant Eagle), everything was from Aldi making it very frugal.

This is definitely a meatless meal that will be making it back into the rotation of a meatless meal a week to help the budget, and I also shared it with my mom so she has a quick vegetarian meal to put together.
