I absolutely love portabella mushrooms, and when I saw that this recipe not only had portabella mushrooms in it, but also avocado as well, I had to make it.  It has been forever since I have had avocado in any form, mainly since it is so high in calories.  Even having a small amount of avocado in a sort of homemade tomato-based guacamole was a treat.  I bought a very small avocado so I wouldn't have any leftover as a temptation, and it ended up being about a half cup of avocado.  I doubled the tomato-avocado mixture (as HG calls it) since I knew my husband would want extra, and it worked out perfect.

Enough rambling about avocado, though.  The rest of the recipe was good as well.  It was very simple and easy to make - just stir-fry the mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions with some simple seasonings until they are done and you are ready to assemble your fajitas.  The best part about it is that you get to eat three whole fajitas.  Awesome!  True, they are small tortillas, but just the fact that you get three of them makes it feel as though you are eating a whole bunch of food.  It was even enough for my husband to be satisfied.

I would definitely make this recipe again.  Although, I will probably wait until the portabella mushrooms go on sale again.  I had wanted to double the recipe so we would have more than just the two servings, but the portabella mushrooms were pretty expensive.  I bought two mushroom caps for $3 at our grocery store, and that was with them being on sale.  Normally they are $2 or more each!  For mushrooms!  If you are not worried about cost, though, by all means, make this recipe.  It is quick, easy, and yummy.

  1. Wow, that seems like an incredible deal for 7 points. Heck, I would think the tortillas themselves were 3 points each. Then you get filling on top of it? Wow! I would love to eat "three" of anything for just 7 points. :)
