The Mexican appetizer fajitas differs from similar burritos or tacos in that all the toppings are placed separately on the table and the guest himself puts whatever he wants on the tortilla. This is a great solution if you have a house party and you are running out of time to prepare treats. Gather everyone around a table centered on guacamole, sour cream, grated cheese, sauces, salsa, and a large baking sheet of roasted bell peppers and chicken. It will take you no more than half an hour to prepare such a dish. And to quickly finish with dirty dishes, first cover the baking sheet with foil.

Fajitas can be both a great picnic idea and a hearty homemade dinner. 
If desired, the filling for the dish can be laid out directly in the tortilla and fastened with a skewer, or you can serve meat with vegetables in a pan separately, and next to it there are fried tortillas and sauces to choose from. 

A long time ago, in the days of the Wild West, cowboys in Texas received cheap cuts of meat for their work when butchering a carcass. To cook food quickly, they cut them into thin strips or laces (faja - lace) and fried them on coals in camping pans.
