  • 1 tablespoon butter or oil if vegan
  • 1/4 cup broth or reserved liquid from can of beans

Guacamole:

  • 2 avocados chopped
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1 garlic clove minced

  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of ground black pepper
  • Dash of smoked paprika

Instructions

  • Prepare your grill for cooking.
  • Slice bell peppers and onion. Place in a large mixing bowl, add olive oil, and toss to coat. Spread vegetables evenly across grilling tray/pan and grill until charred. (If making the pico de gallo, add the Hatch green chile to the grill at this time too.) Transfer cooked pepper and onion mixture back into your large bowl. Add the taco seasoning and toss to coat.
  • While the peppers are grilling, melt the butter in a non-stick skillet. Add the beans and 1/2 cup liquid. Bring to a simmer and mash beans with the back of a wooden spoon, continuing to stir occasionally. Continue to cook until liquid is cooked off and beans are well mashed into spreadable paste. Set aside.
  • To make the guacamole, add all the ingredients into a bowl and mash together with a fork.
  • For the pico, combine all the ingredients and stir.
  • To assemble the fajitas, spread 1/6 of the beans onto a corn tortilla, top with pepper mixture, guacamole, pico de gallo, cheese, sour cream, etc.
