What is a Fajita?
A fajita is any grilled meat which is basically served with colorful bell pepper strips and onions, and wrap them in a traditional flour (or corn) tortillas or lettuce leaf to make it a low carb meal.
The term fajita mainly referred to skirt steak, the cut of beef. Popular meats today also include other cuts of beef, chicken as well as vegetables instead of meat. In restaurants, the meat is usually cooked with bell peppers and onions. Popular condiments include sour cream, guacamole, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, salsa, pico de gallo, refried beans, and diced tomatoes.
Ok, now let me share one secret thing that you may add to get that incredibly flavourful chicken that’s fragrant, savory, and balanced with a hint of sweet. The ingredient that I am talking about is orange juice, when you mix it with other ingredients it simply enhances the flavor. But believe me, you will not get any hint that you have added orange juice in it.
