Hi there, Ameera here!
Yes, I know, I know, another Southwestern dish! Forgive us, but we just can’t help ourselves. You know Mom just can’t get enough Tex-Mex.
This dish has been a long time coming, we just kept moving it around and around on our virtual white board. We created, tested, and wrapped up this dish in 2019. Once again, we found ourselves with too many Tex-Mex/Southwestern recipes and needed to move it around on our recipe calendar.
I love soy curls. They are an excellent choice for a fajita recipe. They worked perfectly in this dish – so much goodness! We fell in love with the first bite, so gosh-darned spicy goodness!
Eat it with delicious tortillas; we used gluten free Siete Almond Flour tortillas. Or pilled it high in a delicious bowl.

This dish is super tasty. As Monkey indicated and you all know by now, I am all about the Tex-Mex/Southwestern cuisine, the more the better. I could probably eat it every day and never get tired of it. Monkey and I were in fajita heaven eating these lovelies!

- Hydrate the soy curls according to package directions, then squeeze out the excess water before placing them in the skillet in Step 5.
- Place all the Spice/Herb Ingredients into a small bowl, whisk, set aside.
- In an enamel/ceramic lined Dutch oven, skillet or similar stock pot, add the sliced bell peppers and onions, sauté over medium-high heat to soften, approximately 8 to 10 minutes. Add a splash of water to prevent sticking and burning.
- Then add the minced garlic and sauté for a few minutes, then add the tomato paste and flour, sauté for one minute. Next add the Spice/Herb mix, sauté for one minute to allow the spices to release their fragrance; then add all the remaining Base Ingredients, stir to combine.
- Add the hydrated and squeezed soy curls and stir thoroughly to get them all coated well with the mixture. Heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until the soy curls are heated through. Taste test, adjust spices, if needed to reach the desired flavor.
- Remove from heat, serve over rice with your favorite toppings or with flour tortillas as a fajita.
*Vegetable Stock: We use Pacific Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Stock. We love this brand because it is Whole Food Plant Based compliant, as it does not contain MSG, has no oil, and does not contain any highly-processed ingredients.
*Tamari: We used San J Tamari Soy Sauce, Gluten Free, Reduced Sodium. You can substitute the tamari with reduced sodium soy sauce, Braggs Liquid Aminos, or Braggs Coconut Liquid Aminos.
*Flour: We used Bob’s Red Mill gluten free all-purpose baking flour blend. You can use the flour of your choice.
*Soy Curls: We found it challenging to find soy curls at our local grocery stores. We ended up buying them from Amazon. We purchased Butler Soy Curls 100% natural, no additives or preservatives, non-GMO, grown without chemical pesticides. However, if you want to make this dish without soy curls, you can add 1 or 2 cans of your favorite beans.
