Portabella Mushroom Fajitas

I love mushrooms, especially Portabella Mushrooms! They're so hearty & filling. I had 2 in the fridge, but my mom still has my grill, so what do I do? Why not fajitas? I scoured the kitchen to find ingredients (didn't wanna go to grocery store). Here's what I came up with...

2 Portabella Mushrooms caps
1 yellow bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 orange bell pepper
1 small onion
garlic cloves 
2 avocados
olive oil
Accent for seasoning (optional)
Remove mushroom stems. Mine were already removed. Slice mushrooms to desired thickness. Slice bell peppers, onion & garlic.

In a saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium to high heat. Add onions & peppers. I decided to use red onion. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until onions are translucent, stirring frequently. Add garlic, then mushrooms. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.
In a separate bowl, slice & mash avocados & stir in your desired amount of salsa. I decided to use Pace Garlic & Lime Verde & Siracha hot sauce. Yummy!
Warm tortillas in microwave for about 20 seconds. Spread avocado mixture over each tortilla, then top with veggie/mushroom mixture. This recipe makes about 4 fajitas...
Don't the mushrooms look just like steak?! I am proud to say that this was a very healthy and tasty lunch/dinner. And I didn't even use salt or cheese, and I loooove cheese! Go me!! Enjoy..
