These vegetarian fajitas are full of hearty, seasonal flavor. We’re making our filling with a colorful combination of sweet peppers, onion, and squash, sautéed with zesty Mexican spices—and balanced by a fresh tomato and jalapeño salsa. On the side, our take on elote, a Mexican street food favorite, is topped with mayo, crumbly queso fresco, and a bit more of the same spices.
