There’s no doubt about it, fajitas are fun food. Whether it’s fajita Friday or any other day of the week, they’re a great excuse to get everyone around the table for a Mexican feast. The finishing touches for your fajita feast have to be the toppings. Here are our top three favourite types of toppings to put on fajitas:

Add a creamy element with Homemade Guacamole, smoky Chipotle Crema or a fresh Avocado Crema.

Add some freshness with a jar of Gran Luchito authentic salsa. We love smoky Chipotle Salsa or zingy Tomatillo Salsa.

Want to continue your fajita education? We got ‘ya! We’ve put together some FAQ answers below. If you want to learn even more be sure to check out the Gran Luchito Youtube Channel.

How do you make Fajitas

1. Thinly slice the meat, peppers & onions.
2. Fry peppers & onions in a large frying pan for 5 mins.
3. Add the meat. Continue to fry for 5 mins.
4. Place 2 spoons of meat filling into the centre of a warmed tortilla.
5. Top with sour cream, guacamole, grated cheese & salsa.
6. Roll & enjoy!

What to eat with Fajitas

Lots of toppings! We think shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole, one of our authentic Mexican salsas and some of our Jalapeño & Pineapple are great choices. Mexican rice, beans (either refried or black beans), nachos or even a simple chips and salsa combo all make for great accompaniments to fajitas.

How are Fajitas and Tacos different?

A fajita can be a taco but a taco is not necessarily a fajita - confused? You're not alone! The main difference is that fajitas are strips of grilled peppers and onions with meat that you roll into tacos yourself (or other items like burritos). They’re meant to bring a more interactive eating experience. In contrast, a taco is served with the filling and toppings already put together and encompasses all sorts of meats and veg with different cooking techniques including stewed and roasted.

Where do Fajitas come from?

Although Texans certainly popularised fajitas and would like to take credit for them, they did not invent them. Mexican ranch workers working along the Rio Grande in West Texas did. They were often paid with what were considered the throwaway cuts of meat from a steer, including the tough cut skirt steak nicknamed “fajas” which roughly translates to “belt”. In the UK we call this cut of meat a Hanger Steak..

What is your Fajita sauce made of?

Our Mild Fajita Cooking Sauce is handmade in Mexico using roasted red peppers blended with tomatoes, garlic and mild chillies and is perfect for adding flavour to fajitas but mild enough the whole family can enjoy.

What Are Fajitas

Typically, fajitas are a filling of sizzling strips of meat with peppers and onions which you can wrap up in a taco, quesadilla or burrito, or as a topping for nachos and tostadas. Nowadays, you will find fajitas with every sort of variation of protein.
