Oil: I prefer olive oil for sauteing veggies. However, Chipotle states they use sunflower oil for their fajita veggies.

Seasonings: Oregano and salt are the only spices you need to bring out the flavors in the vegetables. I recommend dried oregano.

Cook the veggies for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 8 minutes, the veggies were getting softer, but not as soft as I prefer. But, after 15 minutes, they were perfect.

Can I Make these Veggies Ahead of Time?
