Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Total Time: 25 min
Serves: 5

Ingredients:

For the pepper mix:
– 2 Divine Flavor organic red bell peppers
– 1 red onion
– 2 Portobello mushroom caps
– 2 tbsp avocado oil
– 3 cloves garlic
– 1 tbsp cumin
– 2 tsp chili powder
– 2 tsp smoked paprika
– 2 tsp oregano
– ½ tsp salt

For the avocado cream:

– 2 avocados
– 2 small limes
– ¼ cup fresh cilantro
– salt to taste
– pinch of chili flakes
– 10 small fajita wraps (corn or wheat)

Instructions:

  1. Slice the peppers, onions, and mushrooms into thin slices.
  2. In a frying pan, heat oil and add peppers and onion. Sauté until fork tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add Portobello mushroom slices, garlic, and spices. Sauté until mushrooms are cooked and peppers and onions become softer and caramelized, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. While the vegetables are cooking, remove the seed and skin of two avocados and place in a food processor. Juice two limes, add cilantro, salt, and a pinch of chili flakes. Blend until smooth and creamy consistency is achieved.
  5. Serve pepper mix on tortillas, and top with avocado cream. Garnish with cilantro or fresh lime wedges.
