How to make Sheet Pan Veggie Fajitas in Oven
Step 1: Make the taco seasoning Mix
If you just want to make just enough seasoning mix for this recipe: The amounts of each of the three spices are listed in the recipe card at the bottom of the page.
If you want to make a big batch to use later: Here's the homemade taco seasoning recipe. No need to buy the store-bought packets, they're loaded with extra ingredients and preservatives.
Step 2: Chop your veggies
We want the veggies to cook and be done at the same time, so we want to think strategically about the size we chop each of them. See the recipe card for size recommendations.
The sizes I recommend are based on NOT wanting mushy veggies. If you like softer vegetables, consider chopping them smaller, or cooking them longer.
Step 3: Toss the veggies in the oil and seasoning
Put all the veggies in a bowl and pour the oil and seasoning mix in. Toss the veggies to coat them.
Step 4: Bake the veggies
Bake your veggies in your 375 (F) oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until they're cooked how you like them.
Step 5: Make the extras
Step 6: Serve The Fajitas & Enjoy

Yep! Make the Sheet Pan Veggie Fajitas ahead of time, and store them in the fridge until you want to serve them. You can also make the Sheet Pan Veggie Fajitas and eat them throughout the week in your lunches. Your choice!
Should fajita veggies be soft?
I like my veggies to have some texture to them (other than mush). Soft? Sure. Mushy? No thanks. This is an area you have total control over when you cook them at home. Cook them longer for softer veggies, cook them less for firmer veggies.
How do you cut vegetables for fajitas?
When you make fajitas at home, cut them how you like them. There's no hard-and-fast rule here. In restaurants you'll typically see peppers and onions cut into strips.
What are fajita veggies made of?
Fajita veggies usually consist of bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, salt, and pepper BUT you can make them with whatever veggies you prefer!
