Assorted Vegetable Fajitas with Spanish Rice and spicey guacamole

Ok this is my first time actually trying to explain how to make something, so let me know if something doesn't make sense. You can leave out or add anything you want to this dish, this is just what I personally put in it.

Fajita ingredients -

1 Green Bell Pepper cut into thin strips
1 Red Bell Pepper " "
1 Yellow Bell Pepper " "
1 Bundle of Fresh Spinach with stems cut, you can chop them too but they shrink anyway so I just throw them in whole
2 Large Zucchinis or 4 of the small ones chopped into little circles
half of a medium sized onion chopped into strips
1 lime
1 package of veggie beef or chicken strips (forgot the name of the brand I used)
olive oil
Fajita seasoning (I used the Spice Hunter brand: Image hosted by but you can make your own, there are lots of different recipes on the net)
1 package of organic flour tortillas

Directions: Marinate the veggie meat with one whole juiced lime, your fajita seasoning and a dash of olive oil. Mix together. Get a large skillet or pan and pour enough olive oil so the bottom is thinly coated. Chop up your vegetables and toss them into the pan and turn the heat up to high or medium heat. I put the spinach last since they don't take as long to cook. Stir until all vegetables are lightly cooked and toss in the veggie meat with the marinade. Mix everything together and add more fajita seasoning if needed.

Guacamole Ingredients-

2 large Avocados or 3 small ones
chopped onions and cilantro (I don't really measure this I just put whatever looks good)
1 large clove of garlic chopped
1 chopped jalapeno
1 1/2 limes
salt to taste

Directions: Mash up the avocado in a little bowl. Mix in the chopped veggies and add salt and lime to taste.

Spanish Rice

Note- I'm lazy and just make it from the package but here is a recipe you can use:

2 tablespoons olive oil (can use up to 1/4 cup)
1 onion, chopped fine
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups of medium or long-grain white rice
3 cups vegetable stock
1 heaping tablespoon tomato paste or 1 cup of diced fresh or cooked tomatoes
Pinch of oregano
1 teaspoon salt

Directions: In a large skillet brown rice in olive oil, medium/high heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook onion rice mixture, stirring frequently, about 4 minutes, or until onions are softened. In a separate sauce pan bring stock to a simmer. Add tomato sauce, oregano, and salt. Add rice to broth. Bring to a simmer. Cover. Lower heat and cook 15-25 minutes, depending on the type of rice and the instructions on the rice package. Turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes.

Finished product:

Warning- It is so easy to over stuff your fajitas so be careful! The fajita pictured here is definitely overstuffed. Oh yeah this recipe makes 6-8 servings but you will run of guac so you might want to make more if you are feeding a bunch of people at once.
