Our family makes fajitas 3-4 nights a week. We use different veggies almost every time, depending on what is in the fridge or garden. It might be because we live in Tucson where it’s easier to grill outside than heat up the house, but we love grilling and I love the super easy prep that fajitas need. I added Zoodles (zucchini noodles) to my fajitas instead of tortillas a few weeks ago, and… YUM. These Steak Fajita Zoodles are amazing!
To make the Zoodles, I used a spiralizer–and in the few weeks I’ve been using it, it’s been life changing. It makes eating veggies SO easy, and our entire family loves adding extra veggies to meals now that we’re spiral slicing them. This is the one that I use, but there are several styles:
This recipe for Fajita Zoodles combines my love of Zoodles with my husband’s amazing fajita recipe that we have been making for years. The marinade ingredients might surprise you, but the ingredients are SO delicious together. Trust me.
