Veggie Fajita / Veg Fajita–Mexican Platter

Talk about simplicity and I cannot ignore this delicious recipe... When I was in US, the cuisine which has rice (other than Asian ones) is Mexican.. Love their beans and rice, cilantro rice etc.. Again this fajita is another dish that is part of their platter which is a elegant, simple and flavorful vegetables.. Be it burrito bowl or burrito or taco, veg fajita (pronounced as fa - hi - ta) is sure to be there.. Our favorite place was Chipotle where we used to relish burrito and taco and this fajita was so delicious and flavorful.. I surely miss them here in India (although I have so many other Indian options...). So I made them at home and we all relished it!! yummm...

So what is all in the platter? Tomato and Basil Tortillas, Cilantro Lime Rice, Veg Fajita, Sour Cream, Refried Beans, Corn Salsa and Cheddar Cheese
