Vegetarian Fajitas

Last Saturday at the Padmani Yoga Retreat held at the Lotus Heart Center we served vegetarian fajitas. These flavorful vegan fajitas always go over well at retreats. So I am going to share how to put together delicious Mexican fajitas and share recipes for the refried beans and an easy to make vegan chipotle ‘cream’ sauce.


First some other food photos from the retreat:

Vegetarian Fajitas - onions and peppers

To make the pan fried vegetables: thinly slice the onions and sweet peppers. Then fry them in a pan with a little olive oil and season with oregano and cumin while frying.

Vegetarian Fajitas - refried beans

Refried Beans


2 cups cooked Black Beans, or other type of beans
2/3 cup Vegetable broth
1 Tbsp Olive oil
½ Onion, just over a half cup
2 Garlic cloves
1 tsp Chili Powder, regular or Ancho or Chipotle Chili powder can be used as desired for flavor
1 tsp Onion powder


Heat pan and add olive oil and sauté the onions and garlic until soft. Add the beans, vegetable stock and spices and simmer over medium heat until beans soften and liquid is absorbed. Use a fork or masher to mash beans if they are harder and do not soften easily on their own. Cook until desired consistency is achieved. It should be thick enough to make a good filling for the fajitas.
