Prep Time 15 mins
Total Time 1 hr 15 mins
Servings 10 people


  • 2 Skillets
  • Oven


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 10 to 12 mini bell peppers (I used orange and red)
  • 2 bags Gardein chicken strips
  • 1 bag soy beef crumbles
  • 1 package soy chorizo
  • 1 bag vegan powdered fajita mix
  • 10 tortillas (medium sized)
  • 1 can vegan red enchilada sauce
  • 1 whole avocado
  • 1 bag vegan cheddar cheese shreds I used So Delicious
  • Salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin, minced garlic (unmeasured, to taste)


  • Prepare 2 skillets with oil.
  • Heat oven to 375.
  • Finely chop one large onion, and distribute between the two pans.
  • While they start to caramelize, chop between 10 and 12 mini peppers (orange and red) finely. Then distribute between 2 pans.
  • While they're cooking, pour 2 bags of Gardein chicken strips onto a plate. Microwave for one minute.
  • Chop the (still partially frozen) chicken into about .5 inch pieces, then add them into one skillet.
  • Into the other skillet, add one bag of soy beef crumbles. I also added one package of soy chorizo for taste.
  • TRICKY PART>>> Add (between both skillets) one bag of a vegan powdered fajita mix... Then a non measured mix of the following (to taste) --->
  • Salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin, minced garlic.
  • While it's all cooking (about 20 minutes total), prepare the pan.
  • I got a large baking pan, but just get one that will fit the amount of tortillas you are using.
  • Oil the bottom of the pan.
  • I used 10 medium sized tortillas.
  • Lay out the 10 tortillas, and sprinkle with So Delicious cheddar mix shreds.
  • Once mixtures are done, distribute onto middles of tortillas evenly. Add more cheeses. Fold the tortillas, and line them fold down on pan.
  • (I prepared these 2 hours before eating so i placed the entire pan in fridge. Cooking time may vary because of this)
  • Top with a vegan red enchilada sauce. I used canned.
  • Cook for about 15. Take Pan out, add more cheese all on top, cook another 15 minutes.
  • Top with avocado.
