Since this recipe doesn’t require many ingredients to assemble, these zingy fajitas only take 20 minutes to make. But what really makes them a crowd favorite is the added umami and nutrition from Monterey Mushrooms Sizzling Sautés Baby Bella Mushrooms! Our Sizzling Sautés kit comes complete with a sauce packet that’s been specially formulated to complement mushrooms, save you time in the kitchen, and accentuate the flavor of your meals. All without sacrificing the quality of your recipes!

The umami of Baby Bellas is most pronounced when cooked and can significantly improve the flavor profile of a dish. Derived from the Japanese word umami, meaning “delicious,” umami (pronounced oo-MAH-mee) is described as a savory, brothy, rich, or meaty taste sensation. This complex, yet versatile flavor can bring a delectable element to many recipes, including our Sizzling Sautés Mushroom Fajitas! 

Not only are these mushrooms delicious, but they are also a nutritional and versatile food that can be used in many recipes to add a new layer of texture and taste to your meals.
