grilled veggie fajitas with guacamole

Probably one of my favorite kitchen items is my large, very heavy grill pan. It was one of our wedding presents and I am so glad we have it. A couple of nights ago I made Jared these fajitas. I cut thin strips of green bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, red onion and zucchini that I lightly coated in canola oil, sea salt and garlic. I grilled them on a VERY hot grill pan until they were all soft.

I also made guacamole that had Haas avocados, lime juice, red onion, garlic, Thai chili sauce, hot sauce, sea salt and black pepper.

Luckily I found some very vegan friendly flour tortillas and blistered them up on the grill pan. Stuffed with the veggies, guacamole and a touch of salsa, Jared was in gastric heaven.

I love fajitas! I don't often include zucchini on mine, but I like the idea. :)

Those look great! I can never find good avocados up this way, so I'm envious of your guacamole!

I would be in heaven too! I just got a grill pan (a wedding gift, what a coincidence!), haven't used it yet, but plan to soon!

A grill pan! Now I can add that to my list of kitchen shit I want, but can't afford. :)

YUM, I love fajitas but haven't had any since going vegan! That guac does look especially tasty.

I've been out of the blog loop a little this past week, so apologies for my silence--back now though, and enjoying catching up!

Muy bueno! I adore fajitas out, but never think to make them at home.
