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 with my Mexican spice blend.
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.

I do love fajitas but I find them stressful. Love the idea of a sour cream jacky p with them though.
