Chickenish Fajitas

This is one of my favorite recipes to make on week-nights after a long day at work - it comes together very quickly and it is delicious and satifying.

1 10 ounce package frozen peppers (fresh peppers can be used if you have them, using the frozen peppers is a good time saver as they are already sliced)
1 onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 cups TVP chickenish chunks
3 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning
6 sprouted grain or whole wheat tortillas
Shredded vegan cheese (optional)
Salsa (optional)

Serves 2-3 (2 or 3 tortillas each)

Wrap tortillas in aluminum foil and place in 250 degree F oven. (I use our toaster oven for this)

Add taco seasoning to TVP.  Add enough boiling water to just cover TVP - allow to rehydrate while other ingredients are prepared.

Drizzle olive oil into a frying pan.  Add garlic, onions and peppers, saute over high heat until softened.

Add TVP and taco seasoning mixture to frying pan.  Cook until thoroughly heated through and liquid has reduced.

Put filling in the middle of the tortilla, add cheese and salsa if desired, wrap up and enjoy!!

    I can't wait until I can get somewhere with a kitchen to try these. I always think back fondly of the chili we had at your place!
