16 Best Fajitas Fixins You Can Find at the Grocery Store

Is there anything more thrilling than a plate of sizzling fajitas? In terms of casual dining showmanship, fajitas are up there with onion volcanoes and tableside caesar salads. Now, you may not own one of those little skillets or a matching wooden trivet, but making fajitas at home is still very fun. And the most fun part—if it isn’t filling a dining room with aromatic meat smoke—is deciding how to top them. Here’s our guide to the best fajita toppings. 

Best Sour Cream

Fajitas can be pretty darn healthy if you play your cards right. Greek yogurt is a great low-cal sour cream substitute—cool, creamy, and it even has that nice tang!

Fact: Everything is better with queso, and that goes for fajitas, too. If you’ve never had liquid cheese as a topping for fajitas, you’re missing out.

They’re salty. They’re packed with good fats. They taste great fajitas toppings on fully loaded fajitas. We have some pre-sliced ones on our list to make things even easier.

  • I found this one https://nusauces.com/blogs/recipes/fajita-inspired-stuffed-peppers I’m not sure if they are on groceries stores, but this is low calories, very healthy ingredients and amazing taste.

    My request is a list or a picture of all the products you try in a given ranking. Sometimes I wonder if my favorite item lost to the Sporked favorites or if maybe it wasn’t even in the taste test. Seeing what all was tried would clarify that for me personally. But again, love you guys!
