    Tex-Mex fajitas are served in strips, with all the usual veggies you see today.

    Below is a pic of how many family cooks them (family friend of my aunt in Houston, assigned fajita duty):

    Sounds like Tex-Mex and Mexican fajitas are about the same, except Tex-Mex adds veggies, and Mexican doesn't? Is that about right?


    Thanks.

    Well, there are other things added. As a side plate, you get lettuce, some kind of pice de gallo thing, shredded yellow cheese and a scoop of sour cream. But yes, main difference is the veggies, and the usual hot plate presentation you get at most restaurants.

    In Texas, we use cilantro (chopped sometimes), scallions or onions (roasted or raw, also chopped), limes, and a bowl of salsa. If we used cheese, and that's a big if, we'd use cotija.

    Pic below is usually what we end up with when eating fajitas:

    Um, those look like Street Tacos. Unbelievably delicious, but Street Tacos nonethelss. Carlos made some phenomenal ones at a barbecue meetup we had back in like February. I'm guessing these are the same thing going by different names.

    Yeah they do look like then the street vendor tacos, but those are the best and we always try to mimic that style.

    Agreed, Rosa Mexicano is overpriced, you can find better food at Mexican places down in Homestead.

    And why is Spanish paella #47? Somehow, it's considered lower than fish n chips?
