May 27, 2021

There’s no better way to bring some flair to dinner than with fajitas. With infinite customization opportunities and appetizing smells and sounds, some people may argue fajitas are the top choice when Mexican is on the menu. 

Below, we’ve compiled the best fajita recipes available on the Mission Foods website and the perfect Mission products to pair with each. From classic, authentic fajita recipes to interesting twists on originals, you’ll please any palate with these dishes. 

Chicken Fajita Queso Dip

You can transform fajitas into an appetizer with one of the most popular recipes on the Mission Foods website. If written recipes aren’t your thing, check out our recipe video for this dip. The directions call for chicken but steak or plant-based options make good substitutes. 

Start by marinating chicken with the dry ingredients and getting the queso started. Fontina and Monterey Jack cheeses will provide maximum flavor, but pepper jack and cheddar will work in a pinch. Once your meat and cheese are ready, combine and enjoy. Mission’s Strip Tortilla Chips are ideally for dipping and will hold up to a thick dip.

If you want to take your tortilla game to the next level, heat up Mission tortillas for 10-15 seconds per side for maximum flavor.
