Mexican Cuisine has the most interesting and flavorful food as compared to all other cuisines out there. For example, a Fajita; is not just your normal wrap; it is a burst of flavors with beautiful texture and colors. Fajitas certainly steal the show, and you can smell them and hear them from miles away because of their sizzling melody.
One serving of Fajitas gives you an epic and delicious combo of Chicken/Pork/Shrimp or Beef, Peppers, Veggies, Spices, and Caramelized Onions in a warm, grilled tortilla. Even though Fajitas are a meal on their own, however, we have a few very scrumptious side dishes that you can pair with your Fajitas.
Mentioned below is a list of what you should serve with Fajitas. The list includes everything from Crisp to Green Salads to flavorful Rice and simple Chips to Guacamole. Try these out and let us know!
1. Mexican Rice
We often see steamed White Rice is served as a side dish in many cuisines but trust me, Mexican Rice is all that you need to pair with your Fajitas. They look beautiful, taste delicious with a ton of flavors. Unfortunately, some people forget about the Tortilla Bread and turn the wrap into a bowl.
Mexican rice is easy and quick to make, and it takes less than an hour to make it.
2. Black Bean and Rice
Mixing cuisines sounds delicious! Giving Mexican Cuisine a Latin touch by adding black beans to the rice. You need to throw in green Bell Peppers and then flavor it with some Lime, Cumin, and Cilantro. You have an elegant, delicious Fajita side.
3. Spanish Rice
Spanish Rice is another dish that goes well with Fajitas. Although Spanish Rice and Fajitas have similar flavor profiles, they have tomatoes, Onions, Green Bell Peppers, Chili Powder, and Green Chilies. These fantastic ingredients add more spices to your meal.
4. Mexican Quinoa
Not many people like rice; we have got you covered. Try the Mexican Quinoa; it is a healthier option than rice and certainly tastes wonderful with Fajitas. To add more taste to the dish, Zucchini, Tomatoes, Black Beans, and Corn is added with some Fajita Seasoning and Olive Oil. Mexican Quinoa makes an epic side dish and goes very well with your Fajitas.
5. Mexican Street Corn
Whenever it comes to some Mexican festivity, Mexican street corn is a MUST. It is one of the most delicious and famous Mexican snacks, and you will be surprised to know how well it goes with the Fajitas.
What is not there to love? First, you have a scrumptious, juicy Corn on the Cob with Mayonnaise, Chili Powder, Sour Cream, and Cheese on top of it, and then the Corn grilled to perfection. YUMMY!
However, if you’re not into eating messy food, you can turn the Corn on the Cob into a salad instead. This will get a lot easier for your guests, too; now they can also just add a spoon of corn Salad into their Tortilla Wrap and get that crunch.
SinceFajita Wraps is a meal on its own for most of us, and it is nice to pair it with something light but refreshing. And honestly, what is better than a delicious green salad?
Here you have the liberty to make yourself any salad be it Caesar Salad topper with some Shrimps or a simple Salad with Avocados, Cucumbers, and Tomatoes, or maybe a Mexican Slaw with Carrots, Red Onions, Cilantro, Cabbage, and Apple Cider Vinegar. Each of these goes well with Fajitas. The choice is yours.
It is nearly impossible not to mention Guacamole when mentioning other Mexican dishes. This is another side dish that can be paired with any Mexican food, just like with Fajitas. So add a spoon of this incredibly delicious, rich dip and see for yourself how magical your Fajitas are going to taste.
The best part is, it is made within a few minutes. You simply throw in all the ingredients in the processor, blend them and serve it! Yummy!! It can be more simple yet delicious.
