Chipotle Copycat Peppers And Onions Recipe

Chipotle uses green peppers and red onions for their fajitas.  On the picture I used regular yellow onions as those were the only ones I had on hand and I wanted some fajitas NOW! If you are shopping in advance and want to make your fajitas as close to Chipotle’s version as possible, get a red onion.  Since red onions are usually huge, one onion should be enough.  Or if you don’t care about being an exact “copycat”, just get any type of onions (the cheapest ones)! Same with peppers – feel free to use other bell pepper colors such as red, yellow and orange.  The green ones are usually the cheapest though :)

How To Make Grilled Peppers And Onions Like Chipotle

To get a more “grilled” look for your bell peppers and onions, stir them less often so they become charred.  The less you stir, the more blackened they get.
