Nothing goes better with a plate of fajitas than an ice cold glass of red sangria.
Don’t forget the herbs!
Fresh herbs work SO well with powerful flavours, such as those in fajitas. I particularly love to garnish Mexican food with coriander and I also find that mint and marjoram work great too.
Lime wedges are a fantastic addition too, and a great way to balance some of the spice from your favourite dishes.
When serving fajitas, particularly for a crowd, I like to have LOTS of cheese. Grated and sliced works well. People can serve themselves, and slices go great inside a wrap. It makes it much easier to dress your wrap before rolling it up and is less messy too.
Help stretch your meals a little further with these hearty side dishes, and pop some leftovers in the fridge to make a delicious frittata or burrito!
