These sheet pan cauliflower fajitas are one of our favorite meals. Super simple and delicious, cauliflower, peppers, onions and black beans are roasted and served with warm tortillas, avocado and cotija cheese. So delicious
Monday meals are my favorite!!
Mondays in general may not be my favorite, but my Monday meals are absolutely the best. They are always flavorful, mostly simple and super crowd pleasing. The fajitas are exactly that. Caramely roasted vegetables, warm tortillas, creamy avocado, tangy cotjia cheese. I dream about flavors like this!
We are biiiiig sheet pan fajita fans over here.
I don’t always love sheet pan meals, but I find that fajitas are a recipe that turns out great – nearly identical to the smoky, searing hot skillet that they are made in.
Plus, if you’re trying to feed a family, throwing everything on the sheet pan makes it even easier.
My lime loaded shrimp sheet pan fajitas are one of the most popular recipes here on the blog! We love them and they are super simple.
I also have a sheet pan chicken fajita recipe, which is also fantastic. Seriously close in flavor to grilled fajitas, which is my #1 preferred way of making them.
With most of my sheet pan recipes, I get around the whole sheet pan method by doing the vegetables first and then adding on the protein. Since ingredients need different cook times, this usually works great.
With this recipe, I do the vegetables and cauliflower at once. After they roast and get lots of nice flavor, I throw the black beans on the sheet pan and let them get warm in the oven. Sometimes they pop open a bit and the exterior gets crisp while the inside stays creamy.
You can mix everything together but I prep to keep them separate, that way everyone can grab as much of what they like the most. For instance, I go heavy on the cauliflower and light on the black beans. Eddie is the opposite. The kids would go lighter on the peppers and onions. So this method keeps it easy for us to serve.
My other must have sheet pan fajita ingredients:
- Warm tortillas! Corn or flour work. Whichever you love, whichever you have on hand.
- Avocado! Especially for this one. I like using sliced avocado on this over guacamole. Of course guac works too.
- Fresh cilantro and green onions. For a pop of color but also some refreshing flavor.
- Lime wedges for spritzing! They add brightness and pop.
- Cotija cheese for sprinkling. I love this and it’s always in my fridge. A little sprinkle adds so much
