Black Bean Fajita Bowls

Hi Again!

Visiting me because you'd like a quick 15 min nutritious dinner? Look no further. This recipe is a rockstar when it comes to a fast nutritious dinner! Time it! I promise it'll take you less time to make this than to wait for a takeout delivery by the time you decide what to order, order, and then wait for the delivery person. These black bean fajita bowls are loaded with fiber (~15 g actually), protein (~13 g), and yumminess (1000 g of happiness)

What more could you ask for! Below is the recipe.


  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and strained

  • 1 cup of quinoa

  • 2 bell peppers (any color I used green), sliced

  • 1 red onion, sliced

  • 1 tbsp avocado oil

  • paprika, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper as desired

  • Lime, optional

  • Cilantro (for garnishing), optional

  • Salsa


  1. In a small pot combine 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of water. Season water with ~1/2 tsp of the following: paprika, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and oregano. Cover and bring to a boil. When boiling reduce to low heat and simmer.

  2. While quinoa is cooking, in a pan on high heat up 1 tbsp of avocado oil. Throw in bell peppers, onions, and 1/2 tsp of the following spices: paprika, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and oregano. Cook about 8-10 mins on high. Throw in strained black beans and toss together for about 2-3 mins.

  3. At this point, your quinoa should be cooked. Plate 1/2 cup quinoa topped with ~1 cup of your black bean fajita mixture. Serve with cilantro, a lime wedge, and salsa.

That's it! Hope you all enjoy! Try making this next time you're in one of those "takeout is way easier" moods. I promise is super effortless to make.

Until Next Time,

xx Jackie
