Love this dish and how quickly it comes together! Perfect weeknight meal and we always make enough for lunches the next day for work. I would highly recommend it!
I make this recipe about once a week! It’s soo good 😍😍
Delish! And so easy. but you have to find a good chicken mock meat
This has officially become one of my favorite meal prep recipes. I make this every week without fail, as it is so easy to put together and I love the macros for it too (i.e if you are trying to maintain a calorie deficit). It's so flavourful and the spices really set it after one day of refrigeration. Additionally, this recipe works with any kind of protein. I have substituted the protein for tofu, tempeh, chicken, and shrimp. It definitely tastes the best with either the mock chicken or the actual chicken. Overall, I def recommend giving this recipe a try, 10/10.
This one is great for a quick and delicious weekday meal! It has become a staple.
My fiancé and I make this at least once a week !
We tried this for the first time last weekend and loved it! We’ll be doing a repeat this weekend just because!
Looking through PUL recipe archives for more ideas.
So delicious I couldn't bring myself to add any hot sauce for fear I'd mask the incredible flavours
Everyone in my family loved it.. (non-vegans).
I used black beans and jalapeños instead.
This recipe is so tasty and even tastier the next day because all the spices are well incorporated. Would the cashew cream of your tempeh tacos recipe also work with these delicious faijitas or do you have another suggestion?
Yum, yum, yum! Such a flavourful delight! And super quick and easy! Thank you PUL for all your yummy recipes!
We just ate this for dinner! Delicious & very quick to make. I haven’t been able to find the chipotle sauce so we just used our salsa. We added fresh corn & olives for toppings! Yummy 😋
Simple and very tasty! I must admit I'm not a vegan, and only starting to be vegetarian. This site, the channel and this kind of recipes help so much. Hope I won't be judged for saying it, only doing so because I think if people in the same situation think "oh, it's vegan, it's not for me", they're wrong, and maybe my comment will encourage them to try like I did :)
Absolutely delicious! We were caught out with the chipotle in adobo as it was SO SPICY!! Would recommend adding much less of this to start with and then adding more as you like it. I know she even says this in the recipe, but just to reiterate, go easy at first. Loved the flavours :)
Easy steps to upgrade an easy recipe!
This was a perfect and EASY friday night dinner after a long, long week, full of flavor and spice! I ended up having to half the amount of vegetables because of the size of the pan but kept the original amt for the spices (suffice to say.....they were /pretty/ hot). For any of my last-minute scroungers, greek yoghurt worked just as well a coolant as sour cream! Of course, it didnt have the kick that sour cream does but definitely helped with the spices. Loved this recipe, I'm sure this will go into my recipe roster :)
We are trying to expand our vegan recipes. This one was amazing and it conquered even the picky eater of the family!
So good! I probably shouldn’t leave a review every time we make these, but they’re easy and so delicious. We leave out the chipotle because they’re too spicy for us, and add an extra bell pepper so we have plenty of leftovers for tomorrow.
This recipe was.....TERRIFIC! Great job! yum yum and more yum:)
Loved this recipe! I've added thinly sliced aubergine and courgette to it, 0.5 tsp curry powder. For garnishing I added a dollop of Greek yoghurt, chia seeds, avo, mint and coriander. So yummy!
Love how versatile the recipe is and that adding some extras didn't bomb the flavours. Thanks for making healthy fun 😊
Great recipe, it’s now my favourite dish
Super tasty! Next time I’ll try it with mushrooms!
Amazing recipe! Thank you so much.
I usually avoid bell peppers, but I loved them in this recipe. And the toppings! Oh my, they make such a difference. Don't skip the lime, coriander and avocado! I swapped out the vegan mock chicken for vegan mock ground beef & it tasted great. This dish is such a wonderful blend of spice and freshness and is also super healthy with all those vegetables. Please give it a try!
This was a great dish! I definitely under estimated the spice and added a full tsp of chili powder and dang they were spicy 🔥 but very very good! Made these while the rest of the family had shrimp tacos and they even wanted some of mine.
I made this recipe the other day & these were the best Fajitas I've had in such a long time!
Thank you so much for always inspiring me to try out all these new recipes and flavours. :)
Delicious and easy to make! We loved it!
It was amazing! Really, the best dish I have ever had -easy to make and so delicious! I couldn't find any chicken alternative, so I used old-style soybean cube and it fit very well :)
Don't skip the toppings - salsa, avocado, lime - they make all the difference. <3
Delicious! My husband doesn't like bell peppersand he ate them anyway. It was really really good. Tanhks Sadia! ☺❤
OMG 😍 This is easily one of my favorite meal ever! As you said in the recipe, it came together within in 20 minutes and that chipotle sauce 😋 I love how you create simple and flavorful recipes using condiments.
Absolutely delicious. My husband, who usually dislikes any smoke in dishes, loved it as well. It's really an addition to any other wraps recipes I make, distinctive in a very good way.
This recipe has well and truly been accepted into the family 😅 I had a loss recipe for fajitas before but by adding the salsa, frying the tortillas and ESPECIALLY adding the lime it's a fully reformed recipe... And we love it!! Much love to you guys from UK!!
Such a nice and comforting meal, I will definitely be doing this again !!
Ooh, these are so, so good! Thank you for another incredible recipe. I'll be adding this to our family's regular rotation. Any tips for using the rest of the can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce?
Tried these tonight. The non-vegan huz wanted 3rds, and the kids loved them too (albeit a lil' spicy for the youngest, but she still ate it!)
Yes yes yes I’m trying this out! Got my mom in law coming over this weekend and she’s all about fajitas, this recipe is exactly what I was looking for. <> (SO!) as always will help me out with the ingredients. This will be a good one thank you!!
Amazing dish also for meatlovers. Just add some chicken and dinner is ready. It will become our go-to dish for sure! Thank you
The flavor was good but 3 Tbsp of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce was was too spicy for me and my fam. Also, I cooked the bell peppers for probably 10 minutes to give them more caramelization.
I will be making these soon! May I ask why you slice the garlic instead of chunks? I'm very curious. :)
Yum yum yum! So good, can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch today. We couldn't find mock chicken so we added in a chipotle mock sausage, delicious!
I made this tonight and really enjoyed it!!😍
I managed to get my hands on some gluten free multigrain wraps for this recipe which made them extra special. 😊 I opted for lentils instead of vegan 'chicken' and chipotle paste and it tasted fantastic especially with the addition of crunchy red cabbage, salsa, avocado and lime juice. I will definitely be making these again and will probably try a mix of mushrooms and beans next time! Thank you for such a quick and delicious recipe!
Sooooooo delicious!!! Heerlijk
This was fantastic! Thank you 😊
This was absolutely lovely, amazing to have such an easily written recipe with ALL the information available (especially regarding servings amount as normally I have a tendency to cook for the whole army). It is written in a very informative and easy to follow manner, whilst the food is absolutely delicious. I love the atmosphere of this website and the YouTube videos. Thank you so much for creating such a safe, cosy and inspiring space :)
Oh my god these are amazing! I'm not vegan or vegetarian or anything, so i made these with real chicken and the flavour was just so damn good!! Never thought I'd fall in love with a vegan blog but there is just so much great inspiration here! Thank you! Love from Australia XX
This was delicious! Perfect with the splash of lime and we added dairy free sour cream!
Hi, just made that tonight for dinner and it was absolutely delicious. Don’t miss on the salsa, it made all the difference for us. Thanks for this lovely recipe - again. You and your team are doing an insanely good job. Best Stefan from Berlin
This was a very simple, quick, and delicious! I used a prepackaged fajita spice mix ( I learned that from one of your other videos) to boost the flavour, and to stay within a certain budget. Thank you for yet another great recipe!
What a wonderful vegan blog you have here! After a 2 year blogging break I recently started from scratch and can now be found here: - but - have come to the realization that our vegan blogging community has diminished quite a bit so I'm trying to connect with other veggie blogs once again. I absolutely LOVE yours! The photograph is wonderful and the layout is very nice, too! These Vegan Chipotle Fajitas sound amazing!
Thank you for this amazing recipe <3 ! Would you mind sharing the brand of the flat white skillet (used to warm up the tortillas)? It's gorgeous and I'd love to purchase it, thank you (: !
I love the idea of fajitas but unfortunately I'm allergic to capsicums (bell peppers). I know it would change the flavour/texture of the dish but do you think mushrooms would work as a substitute?
This recipe is just superb! As I am vegetarian so this recipe is going to be my "go to lunch". Thank you so much for sharing these easy tummy filling recipes.
Both of you are amazing. And yes I have been following this channel since 2017 and your videos always make me feel calm and pleased.
