For the second day of Tortillas Dishes, I decided to make a Fajitas. Only after taking this up, I realized I was confused between a Fajita, taco and for that matter the quesdillas as well.
So that meant I do some research on the different types of Tortilla dishes, especially how different a Fajita is from a Taco or a Quessadilla.
For a Fajitas, frilled meat is served with tortillas and assorted condiments on the side. This can be eaten as a taco or burrito style.
is a large tortilla, folded in half, stuffed with Queso (cheese) and other optional stuffing, then grilled on the outside.Tacos
are traditionally small palm sized tortilla, warmed and served open faced or lightly folded. The stuffing can be spiced meat/vegetable garnish. These can be optionally served with cheese.Burritos
on the other hand is similar to a taco in ingredients but uses a larger tortilla served as a closed, cylindrical "wrap".
So coming back to the Fajitas, apart from the grilled meat,
condiments, to make a vegetarian version, you could use grilled bell
pepper, grilled onions.
I made Vegetarian Fajitas with Refined
Beans, Grilled Corn along with Fresh onion, roasted corn and tomato
Salsa on a bed of tomato salsa sauce.
