Fajitas are so hard to photograph.  I did the best I could.  I hope they look yummy to you.  These fajitas are vegan and gluten free.  I topped them with my dairy free sour cream.  It’s amazing.  If you haven’t tried it, you should.  It really taste like sour cream.  Or at least what I remember sour cream to taste like. lol.  And everything is better with avocado.  Agreed?

  1. Do you have any tricks or suggestions for the tortilla's? Mine break as soon as I try to roll them, they are so brittle. I have tried a few different brands without any luck!?
  2. I have tried so many homemade fajita seasoning mixes and once, just once I found one I liked...and then proceeded to lost it never to be found again. Well, that problem has been solved! This recipe is delicious!! I did add 1 teaspoon coconut sugar per batch because the typical seasonings a wee bit of sweet to them, just ever-so-slight. THIS is my go-to fajita recipe! Thanks, Melissa!!!
