Mexico Meets China In This Spicy Vegan Stir-Fry

Chinese or Mexican? Have both. Skip the delivery and make this mashup of two takeout classics – fajitas and stir-fried rice. This meal is super easy to make and comes together quickly, which is perfect for a weeknight meal. You can use store-bought microwaveable rice or any leftover cooked rice you have on hand. I’ve found that stir-fry dishes are great for day-old rice as the cooking liquids reinvigorate the grains, which usually go dry in the fridge. Quick, easy, and cheap, fusion food might just be your new favorite cuisine.
