Tricolor Vegetarian Fajitas

Vegetarian Fajitas Recipe
These vegetarian fajitas offer a slight twist on the traditional Mexican fajitas recipe. Instead of salsa, we use crème fraiche here, which goes very well with the stir-fried vegetables and makes a creamy filling rather than a tomato-based one. If you want to, you could use sour cream instead of the crème fraiche, if you prefer a tangy flavor. The chili oil is optional but it goes give a nice, spicy kick to this vegetarian fajitas recipe.
