Vegan Fajita Casserole

June 2, 2010 by Keri

Last night’s dinner was like someone stole the tortillas and I was forced to dump all the fajita ingredients into a big casserole dish!  Oh, and I grilled some corn on the cob too.  I should spare you the picture of this vegan casserole in the baking dish because the lighting really accented the baked-on vegan cheese around the edges, but this casserole is great, delicious, and simple to serve in a pinch if guests show up expecting to be fed.  I simply layered black beans, seasoned rice (lemon juice, cumin, black pepper, sea salt, and whatever else you like), grilled red, orange, and yellow peppers, grilled onion, and vegan cheddar and mozzarella shreds.

While my husband and I both love spicy food, I can’t add anything like crushed red pepper flakes (my favorite) to the entire dish because my two year old will try to wipe the spicy off his tongue all night.  He makes the spicy face over things I would have never deemed spicy!  For a little extra, the husband added some salsa on top, but since I’m not a huge fan of the jar he’s currently working on, I skipped it.  What I love about these big casseroles, and I bet you can guess, is lots of leftovers!

  1. Sounds delicious! I like spicy food too! I totally got that image of your 2 yr old wiping his mouth. Ha ha ha!

    • Keri says:

      Yeah, he sticks out his tongue and starts trying to wipe it off with his hands! I’m really careful, but he’s got the most sensitive tongue ever! He’ll start doing it and I’ll look at my husband and ask, “Is this spicy?!” The little man sure thinks so! 😛

    Looks awesome! A potato, asparagus and onion with veggie broth is my fave casserole.

    • Keri says:

      That sounds really good! And I have all of those things- Can I find the recipe on your blog?

      • Jenna @ Healthy. Happy. Well. says:

        Notyet! I’ll get it posted soon.It’s just2 cups sliced potatoes,1 cup cut asparagus,one onion chopped thrown into a casserole dish with a layer of vegetarian broth ( pacific foods) in the oven for about 30 minutes. It smells divine!

  3. I love casseroles- somehow they always seem so much heartier to me 😉

  4. Gorgeous! Your whole blog is gorgeous, in fact. One of my favorites, actually :)… did you do it yourself, or did you hire someone?

    • Keri says:

      Thank you so much!! I hired my husband, and then I stiffed him on the bill. 😉 It’s nice to work with him because I don’t have to be as reserved about my thoughts and ideas as I might with someone I didn’t know. I get to be completely hands-on with the project. We’ve worked on a few projects together and I’m sure there will be more to come!

  5. Just getting back from vacation and it looks like I have many yummy things to catch up on around here. Your bridal shower desserts are INSANE! I love this casserole idea. Admittedly, I haven’t made any casseroles since I became vegan (what’s up with that?). Now you have my imagination going!

    • Keri says:

      Yeah, thank goodness there were shower leftovers. *Raids freezer* Thank you! Can’t wait to see what you come up with in the casserole department!

  6. Amanda says:

    Seriously – most times I make tacos its more about the filling than the shell. I love all the colors, it looks like a barbecue met the taco and had a party!

  7. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) says:

    that looks great! i never make anything like a casserole. it’s just not my go-to. raw veggies are about as exotic as our dinners get LOL

  8. Danielle (Runs on Green) says:

    The fajita casserole looks delish! Especially with the melted Daiya

    I love casseroles, although I don’t make them often because I’m just one person and I’m eating left-overs for days 🙂

    • Keri says:

      Aww, yeah I’m grateful for my vegan family to eat all of my vegan cooking experiments! 🙂
