When you read the word fajitas, you can hear the sizzle, smell the onions, and know what you are getting for lunch or dinner. Fajitas often consist of grilled or sauteed strips of marinated meat such as beef, chicken, or shrimp cooked with onions, peppers, and spices. 

Random Fact: The concept of fajitas began to make the rounds in the early 1930s when Mexican vaqueros in Texas developed the fajita from throwaway cuts of beef. 

The combination of these ingredients creates a flavorful and aromatic experience. It is served on a sizzling hot plate, adding excitement and interactivity to the dining experience. Fajitas come with various accompaniments such as tortillas, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, and lettuce. The combination of textures, with the tender meat, crunchy vegetables, and soft tortillas, enhances the overall enjoyment of the dish.

My favorite fajita combination is going to be steak and shrimp.
