- Place bell peppers and onions in a separate bowl; add half the oil mixture and toss to coat.
- Carefully remove baking sheet from oven; coat with cooking spray. Spread pepper mixture onto pan.
- Broil until almost tender, about 10 minutes. Remove sheet pan from oven.

Tiana D. says:
You had me at "sheet pan". These fajitas were so easy to make and really great, even as leftovers. I like to go to Mexican restaurants for fajitas, but this recipe will have me staying home a lot more often.
Greg Jones says:
These sheet pan fajitas area really good. When they come out the oven I just eat them right off the sheet pan. They're really quick and easy, which is also a plus.
Laura Griffin says:
These sheet pan fajitas are ridiculously easy and very delicious. They're so flavorful you could really eat them without any sides. If I want something a little more filling, I make it with rice and beans. This recipe is also great for meal prepping.
