Salad Bowl

Fajita Veggies

  • 1 bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 onion thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fajita seasoning to taste


  • Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Stir fry the bell pepper and onion until cooked through, then set aside.
  • Warm up your leftover slow-cooker carnitas in the microwave then set aside.
  • In a large salad bowl, layer the lettuce with cilantro lime rice, black beans, carnitas, and fajita veggies.
  • Then dollop on the pico de gallo, guacamole, and sprinkle with cheese.



  • Just omit the cheese and lime crema for a delicious dairy-free option.
