Portobello Mushroom Fajitas

  • These were really awesome despite the use of much seasoning and thats why I decided to share. I happened to slice my finger open cutting an avacado in a hurry, which was my addition to the recipe, but luckily these were good enough that I didnt care much!!


1 tablespoon olive oil

4 cups of sliced portobellos (I guestimated at 3 caps)

1 cup of vertically slices red onion (used 1/2 of a regular onion, instead)

1 cup of green bell pepper strips (obviously, I used red, sucha rebel)

2 minced garlic cloves

3 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice (didnt use fresh)

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 serrano chile (I used the jalapeno I had on-hand instead)

12 flour tortillas

1 cup of crumbled queso fresco (I think any favorite cheese will do just fine 🙂 )


Heat the oil in a medium pan on medium high, saute the mushrooms for about 5 minutes. Then add your pepper, onion, and garlic – turn down to medium and saute for another 4 minutes. Take it off the heat and add the cilantro, chile, salt, pepper, and lime juice.

The recipe is courtesy of my Cooking Light cookbook, but I think the servings were a little off. I’d say theres about 4-5 servings of filling, depending on how much you use. Add as much salsa, cheese, sour cream as you want (unless you want to keep this recipe LIGHT). I also added some avacado. Serving size is 3 fajitas according to the recipe but you can do the math.
