When I planned dinner last night, I prepped fajitas. Then, I realized I didn't have tortillas! Yes, that happens to me too, but since I cut all the ingredients, I switched it up and made fajita soup instead. What is fajita soup you may ask? Fajita soup combines all your favorite fajita goodies in a bowl of slightly spicy broth. And what makes it even better is it takes less than 20 minutes and one pan to make this tasty fajita soup recipe.
I love Mexican food, but I've never eaten vegan Mexican soup, so I decided to make some. Even though it's hot outside, I eat soup all year long. Today, I had that soup loving feeling. To be honest, I also wanted to make something quick and easy one would love. Luckily, I hit a home run.
WHAT FAJITA INGREDIENTS ARE NEEDED FOR FAJITA SOUP RECIPE?
Believe it or not, I used the exact ingredients I pre-cut for fajitas:
- Portobello Mushrooms
- White Onions
- Yellow Bell Pepper
- Red Bell Pepper
Then, I added some soup ingredients to make fajita soup a meal:
- Rotal Tomatoes
- Organic Vegetable Broth
- Pasta of Choice
- Fajita Seasoning (homemade version below or use your favorite vegan package mix)
COOKING FAJITA SOUP IN LAYERS IN UNDER 20 MINUTES
Begin with a deep soup pot. The next step is to saute the garlic, onions, and portobello mushrooms until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms are browned.
Then, add all the peppers and cook for about 5 minutes until the peppers soften.
Once the peppers and combined with the mushrooms, onions and garlic, add the Rotel tomatoes, noodles of choice, and stir.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE NEEDED FOR HOMEMADE FAJITA SEASONING
Although you can use a store-bought fajita seasoning, I prefer to make my own seasoning.
FAJITA SEASONING (OR CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE FAJITA SEASONING MIX)
- Chili Powder
- Sugar (or sub maple syrup or date syrup)
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
- Salt to Taste
Top with vegetable broth, fajita seasoning, and bring to boil. Once boiling, cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
As a result, you have a slighly spicy, savory fajita soup.
