What to serve with fajitas


Uncooked white paella rice in a white bowl

Nice and simple. You can get microwave or frozen rice from the supermarket if you want to save time/effort. I love to make rice in my slow cooker. It is really simple, just needs stirring a little and can be jazzed up with herbs and spices.

Tortilla chips

Air fryer tortilla chips

You can make your own tortillas from scratch. I love to do this as it is a cheap and fast way to make something from scratch. Then you can just pop them in the oven to make the tortilla chips nice and fast, or make air fryer tortilla chips. Of course you can just buy a bag from the supermarket instead!

Airfryer chips

I love to make chips in my air fryer! They are simple, crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. These are a great accompaniment to fajitas. You can buy frozen chips and pop them in the oven or air fryer instead to save some time & effort. Be sure to check out my salt and pepper chips too!

Jacket potatoes with sour cream

Personally I make jacket potatoes in the slow cooker. They are really simple, cook themselves and they can be left until whenever the fajitas are ready to serve. Leftover potatoes can be frozen whole and even microwaved from frozen. This is great for cutting food waste down too.

Garlic bread

Easy homemade garlic bread - look at the bread once it has been dressed!

I love to make homemade garlic bread, and you can just use some leftover bread for this. Alternatively buy a frozen one and pop it in the oven as you’re warming your tortillas and frying your fajita mix.

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