Four-Pepper Black Bean Fajitas

I love tacos and if you have been following my blog you know I love cooking with peppers. This Four-Pepper Black Bean Fajitas recipe is simple and not time-consuming. It only required cooking peppers and onions and blending the ingredients for the black bean. I have actually made this before a long time ago, but when I did I mistakenly used more than 1 chipotle in adobe sauce–lets just say I experienced a Thai Hot moment. Chipotle peppers in adobe sauce are something serious. You only need 1 for a strong kick of heat. View my previous blog post Pep it up! to learn the health benefits to eating peppers. 

Here’s to the recipe…


1 can black beans (15 ounces), rinsed and drained

1/4 cup water

3 tbs olive oil, divided

2 tbs lime juice

1 canned chipotle pepper in adobe sauce

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 tsp salt

1 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips

1 medium green bell pepper, cut into strips

1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into strips

2 medium onions, cut into 1/4 inch wedges

8 flour tortillas

1/4 chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 cp sour cream

1 medium  lime, cut into 8 wedges


  1. Combine beans, water, 2 tbs oil, lime juice, chipotle pepper, garlic and salt in blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Place in medium microwavable bowl. Cover with plastic wrap; set aside.
  2. Heat remaining 1 tbs oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add bell peppers and onions; cook and stir 12 minutes or until beginning to brown.
