Meatless Dinners: Bean and Veggie Fajitas

Before this lifestyle change I would often go meatless on fajita night, so that is nothing new. I even went with the whole wheat tortilla.  The only thing I'm not doing differently is not adding sour cream and cheese and salty seasonings.  I'm also now adding mashed seasoned (little to no salt) beans to the fajita to help add dimension and flavor.

I made some fresh homemade pico de gallo in a flash using Bragg's Amino Acids in lieu of salt.

I used two roma tomatoes
1/4 of a sweet onion minced fine
a pinch of onion powder
a pinch of garlic powder
a pinch of ground cumin
a squeeze of lime
Bragg's amino Acid in lieu of salt

It was a virtual cornucopia of veggies last night between the pico, the New Mexico green chile peppers (Anaheims), and fajita veggies.

And ever so tasty.

Cost Break Down:

Whole Wheat Tortillas $3
1 can beans $1
8 oz. mushrooms $2
onion $1
peppers $2

Homemade Salsa
2 roma tomatoes $1
cilantro $.60
onion $.50
lime $.25

=$11.35 for the meal for 4 or $2.80 a serving

You save a lot not using sour cream and cheese.
