5 Rules for Cooking and Serving Tex Mex

When it comes to cooking and serving Tex Mex dishes, we think you should make sure your sense of humor is working well. Tex Mex dishes are pretty easy to make, fun to serve and great to eat, so prepare yourself – and your tastebuds — for fun!

  1. When making fajitas, make sure the grill is hot, hot, hot!!!

Fajitas when served need to sizzle and they won’t sizzle unless your grill is extremely hot! You also need to remember to slice the skirt steak across the grain, get a plate that handles heat well and serve. And don’t forget to warn anyone to whom you pass a fajita meal that “Watch out; the plate is very hot.”
