Chipotle Mushroom Fajitas

Updated: Nov 7, 2020

I remember in my "pre-vegan" days how excited I would get when I would order fajitas at a restaurant. The waitress would bring over a screaming hot sizzling cast iron platter full of food. I can still hear the waiter exclaiming "This is super hot! Be very careful." So imagine my excitement when I walked through TJ Maxx and found a cast iron platter. There was no question in my mind what I was going to use it for.....Fajitas. Now if you don't have a cast iron platter that's perfectly ok. You can always use a traditional cast iron skillet or regular pan to make these.

Cook Time: About 20 Minutes

Makes 4-6 Fajitas


  • 1 large bell pepper sliced

  • 1 large green bell pepper sliced

  • 1 medium sized onion sliced

  • 1 large oyster mushroom pulled apart (see photos below) You can also use whatever mushroom you like.

  • 1 tsp of garlic (optional)

  • 1 tsp of ground chipotle powder

  • 1/2 tsp of cumin

  • 1 tsp of chili powder

  • sea salt and pepper to taste

  • Corn tortillas

  • 4 tbs of oil for cooking (I used extra virgin olive oil)

Additional Toppings

  • Fresh avocado slices

  • Fresh pico de gallo


  • Place a large skillet over medium high heat and add in the oil.

  • Next add in the onions, peppers, mushrooms and seasonings.

  • Cook while stirring occasionally for about 15 minutes. *Note I like to stir everything every few minutes so that everything has the chance to get nice and caramelized.

  • Add sea salt and pepper to taste.

  • Now all you have to do is wrap em' up in a tortilla with some fresh avocado and Sriracha sauce.

Oyster mushrooms make a great substitute for chicken.

Here's a great cast iron skillet:
