We like to use frozen vegetables since we generally have them on hand for those nights when quick and easy is all we have time. Of course fresh vegetables can be just as easy though... if you have a chopper handy to cut back on the prep time. Either way you decide to make them they are super tasty.

Taco, enchilada or fajita style seasonings are all great in this recipe, and black beans, pinto beans or Morningstar Grillers Recipe Veggie Crumbles add great texture and a bit of healthy vegetarian protein to the recipe as well.

You can serve them with a batch of homemade guacamole, your favorite tortilla chips, a bit of salsa and some shredded cheese and sour cream to top them off.
