Crispy Cheese and Veggie Fajitas

with Hot Sauce Crema

HelloFresh fans, meet your new favorite fajitas. No, we’re not talking about your average, run-of-the-mill restaurant fare—see ya later, boring beef! These fajitas are extra special. Spice-rubbed grilling cheese is pan-seared to develop a deep brown crust while the inside gets all warm and melty. The killer queso is then piled into steamy tortillas along with a tangle of peppers and onions, a drizzle of hot sauce crema, and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro. It’s a fiesta on your plate!


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Small Bowl
Medium Pan
Large Pan



Wash and dry all produce. Core, deseed, and thinly slice bell pepper. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Roughly chop cilantro leaves and tender stems.

Make Crema

In a small bowl, combine sour cream and hot sauce (to taste). Stir in water, 1 tsp at a time, until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency. Season with salt.

Prep Cheese

Slice grilling cheese into 6 equal sized pieces (12 pieces for 4 servings). Drizzle on both sides with olive oil, then sprinkle with half the Fajita Spice (you’ll use the rest later). Rub to evenly coat grilling cheese in spice.

Cook Veggies

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, onion, remaining Fajita Spice, and a large pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are softened and beginning to char, about 8 minutes.

Sear Cheese

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat (use a nonstick pan if you have one). Add grilling cheese and sear until browned, 1-2 minutes per side. (For 4 servings, sear in two batches.)

Finish and Serve

Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels and microwave on high until warm, about 30 seconds. Divide tortillas between plates. Top tortillas with one piece of grilling cheese each, then add veggies, crema, and cilantro.
