A fajita in Tex-Mex cuisine is any grilled meat that is served like a taco on a flour or corn tortilla. The term originally referred to skirt steak, the cut of beef first used in the dish.

Fajitas can also be made with chicken, pork, shrimp, lamb, salmon, other types of fish, and other cuts of beef, as well as vegetables instead of meat.

Popular condiments include shredded lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, pico de gallo, shredded cheese, refried beans, and diced tomatoes. You can read more about Fajitas here.
