Basic Fajita Filling
1 or 2 medium yellow onions
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow or orange bell pepper (optional)
½ of a purple or green cabbage
3 Tablespoons olive oil
2-3 Tablespoons Shoyu
Mexican seasoning (chili powder, cayenne, garlic, cumin, oregano, coriander, paprika etc.)
Optional Ingredients:
Black Beans
(What ever you like I enjoy making "theme" type fajitas like a summer veggie one with some onion, asparagus, summer squash, carrots with a bit of rosemary and other savory seasonings)

Slice all the veggies fajita style saute just until crisp-tender in the oil, Shoyu and seasoning. Be sure not to over cook your veggies just lightly saute. We like them with corn tortillas warmed in a frying pan with a little olive oil. We also put Spanish Rice and Guacamole on them. You can use the filling on a taco salad in a tortilla with refried beans and /or guacamole and salsa, or in a fajita type casserole. Left overs would even be good to throw in with a stir fry the next day. It's a really flexible recipe do what you want, have fun make it fit your tastes!

Tam-can you tell me what your average monthly food bill is and maybe some tipe you've learned to eat healthy for cheap.

I would say for our family of 6 we average about $600 a month for food. Of course I have never really been strict about the food budget. I have pretty much bought what I need and don't sacrifice price for bad ingredients. (we sacrifice in other areas but not health ie. I've never had a SUV or brand new furniture;) BUT I'm pretty sure without even trying very hard I could skim that down by at least a couple hundred dollars. I hope to half it! We spend the most of fresh fruits and veggies. I am learning to grow a better garden and by local while in season and dry and freeze to use through winter. That will save me a lot right there. I stopped buying "healthy" cereal and I make granola etc. And I'm learning to make bread more often and buy it less. Not buying convience saves a lot too! Both in money and health.

You just have to learn to look at things differently I know a lot of people think I must live in my kitchen. But I promise once you have the things you need an have made it your way of life. You will find you spend less money and less time! ;) I seriously only average maybe an hour a day in my kitchen. IF THAT!
