We’re BIG fans of fajitas! Knowing what to serve with fajitas, to feed a hungry crowd, is something that I have struggled with in the past.

Today I’m going to share with you 50+ side dishes to serve with air fryer chicken fajitas or Ninja Foodi chicken fajitas and I hope you find some super delicious recipes you absolutely love!

Fajitas are fantastic for feeding a hungry crowd, and adding in a few side dishes can be a great way to prepare food in advance and even save some money too.

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.

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!

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

Ahh no! I love a good fajita, half the fun is in the wrapping!
