This post was sponsored by Fresh From Florida as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central, however, all opinions expressed are my own. These Quinoa Fajita Bowls come together in less than 30 minutes and are loaded with flavor! This is a great Vegetarian, Gluten Free option for Mexican night!
We have Mexican night at least once a week in our house, so I’m always looking for ways to mix up the menu so we’re not just eating tacos every week.
I’m a huge fan of fajitas, so I thought I’d put a new spin on it by turning it into a bowl.
I love it when you can just put all of your ingredients into one bowl and then nosh away. It’s less messy, and so much easier to eat.
To make these Quinoa Fajita Bowls is simple.
Start by making the Quinoa. While the Quinoa is cooking, you can chop and prepare the rest of the ingredients so it’s all ready to go.
Next sauté the Peppers and Onions. When I’m buying produce I like to look for the Fresh From Florida label, because I think it’s important to buy local and help the local farmers out. Plus the Florida farmers make it easy for everyone to eat fresh produce year-round.
I can easily find Fresh From Florida produce at my local Publix, like these Baby Bell Peppers I used for this recipe!
Next just add all of the ingredients to your bowls (this recipe also works great for Meal Prepping!)
And proceed to chow down! 🙂
I hope you guys love these Quinoa Fajita Bowls as much as I did! They’re:
- Easy to make
- Gluten Free
- Loaded with Flavor
- Perfect for Meal Prepping
- and so Satisfying!
