A plate of fajitas

A fajita (/fəˈhtə/; Spanish: [faˈxita] (audio speaker iconlisten)) in Tex-Mex is any grilled meat that is usually served as a taco on a flour or corn tortilla.[1]

Popular meats used include steak, chicken and other cuts of beef, as well as vegetables instead of meat.[2][3]

In restaurants, the meat is usually cooked with onions and bell peppers. Popular condiments include shredded lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, pico de gallo, shredded cheese, beans, and diced tomatoes.
