Fajitas*

"Quick, satisfying & works with almost whatever ingredients you have available.   We cook these in a panini-maker which has a top that holds the rolled-up tortillas together.   A similar grill would work. 

You can't go wrong - ALL INGREDIENTS ARE OPTIONAL except the tortilla.
Then use your imagination.  With salsa, beans, maybe cabbage etc. - you're good to go!

Spread onto a soft whole-wheat tortilla:
A shmear of canned fat-free refried beans (helps hold it together)
THEN ADD ANY COMBINATION OF YOUR CHOICE OF THE FOLLOWING:  
Some canned beans, rinsed & drained - such as pinto, black beans etc.
Raw chopped cabbage
Raw chopped onion
Fresh basil leaves  and/or fresh spinach leaves
Hot sauce
garlic powder or chopped garlic
Salsa
avocado pieces
ETC . . . .

Directions:   Fold up and grill.

An ingredient that we don't recommend is vegan cheese.  Though tasty, it's very high in fat and not conducive to good health or weight loss.  Especially if you're just starting out, vegan cheese makes this taste more like the traditional version you may be used to.  Vegan cheese is likely to be a little healthier than dairy cheese.  Most people will find this to be delicious without the fake cheese.

You can set up a buffet with a variety of separate ingredients and let everyone put their own fajita together. You are only limited by your imagination.
