Crispy Cheese and Veggie Fajitas

with Hot Sauce Crema

Read more

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!

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.
