Everyone loves a Mexican fajita night! And if you’re wondering what to serve with fajitas we’ve got you covered with 10 tasty side dishes.
The kids love Fajita Friday – succulent spicy chicken with peppers and onions all wrapped up in warm tortillas. But alongside the usual soured cream and shredded cheese I always add some sides.
So when it comes to serving up fajitas at my house it’s usually a complete FEAST! With the table loaded with delicious, tasty side dishes so everyone can help themselves.
Any leftovers I keep in the fridge and use again the next day.
