Fajita Brussels Sprouts

Fajita-Brussels-sprouts-in-pan

If taste was based on the level of difficulty it took to make a recipe, these veggies would taste horrible.

Thank goodness that’s not how it works because these roasted Brussels sprouts, fajita style, are easy to make and also taste wonderful.

These Brussels sprouts are mixed with fajita veggies and sauce.

Then fresh cut cherry tomatoes are served on top of the warm veggies for a super simple and fresh side dish.

I like to use various colors of cherry and teardrop tomatoes when I can find them in the store.  The yellow ones are especially colorful in this dish.

A super simple and colorful side dish that can even be served right out of the pan are the perfect veggie treat.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Now let’s check out the ingredients.
