I'd say this is my favourite as it was the dish I ordered in Mexico and the only reason I probably didn't enjoy it was the quality meat. It wasn't as good as what I get in Australia. Fajita's are traditionally grilled spicy meat and capsicums served with flour or corn tortillas and condiments like salsa, guacamole, and sour cream. At Cactus Jack's this is their 'signature' and most popular dish - and I have burn marks from the hot plates.
The photo above is my fajita in Mexico ... as you can see, no hot sizzling plate!
We used to have tacos a lot when I was a kid. Taco shells filled with spicy beef or chicken mince with lots of lettuce and carrot and topped with a bit of taco sauce are still a favourite of mine today. No matter what, tacos are always a winner.
3. Chilli Con Carne
Chilli beef mince in a stew of tomatos (I cut out the beans) and maybe served on a bed of steamed rice - this one is always a winner! At Cactus Jack's, they have all you can eat Chilli Tuesday - it was one of our busiest nights.
Before I ate the fajita at Cactus Jack's, the enchilada's were my favourite. Shredded chicken filling wrapped in corn tortillas, covered with cheese and spicy sauce and then baked, these are served well with rice, salad, and topped with sour cream. No wonder I no longer eat them! All that cheese!
I used to always be eating nachos - lots of corn chips covered in chilli chicken or beef (or no meat is even better), lots of cheese, salsa, sour cream, and guacomale, I used to have it all ready to go in the fridge. I don't anymore ... but if I'm to make nachos, I now make them with my low-carb potatoes! Potato nachos are just as good as the real thing - with the goodness of potato. Let's face it, we all love potatoes more than corn.
