The other night I was watching and unburger challenge on The Food Network. I was disappointed that no one made a veggie option so I came up with my own. Presenting the Fajita Unburger! Definitely will be making this one again.
I first cut up peppers and onion. I used a red bell pepper, green bell pepper, and some orange and yellow sweet mini peppers I had on hand. I added in a red onion for more flavor.
Next I mixed up some fajita seasoning using paprika, chili powder, cayenne, garlic powder, cumin, minced onion, and a bit of oregano. Chipotle would have been a good addition as well.
I then squeezed fresh lime into the mix to give it a bit more flavor.
While that was cooking I rubbed garlic powder all over a portabella mushroom cap and baked for 15 minutes. I also started on the homemade pico.
I used the rest of the onion and lime. I omitted jalepeno because I added extra cayenne to the pepper mixture. I’m also one of those people that doesn’t like cilantro so I omitted that as well.
Once the mushroom cap had baked for 15 minutes I added in the pepper mixture and topped with cheese and stuck it back in the oven to finish baking and to melt the cheese.
I then topped with the pico and a bit of sour cream. I probably would have made the mushroom have a bit more flavor and used more lime juice, but otherwise it was pretty tasty!
