Remember when ordering fajitas used to be exciting? Yeah, neither do we.
Now that even fast-food restaurants serve fajitas, they’ve lost a bit of their luster.
But that’s all about to change thanks to our favorite uncle.
Introducing seven new fajita dishes at Uncle Julio’s that make fajitas fun again.
You can now order plentiful combos that start with chicken and beef fajitas then add either king crab legs, crispy beef tacos or stacked beef enchiladas for a wide variety of flavors and textures on one plate.
Go totally upscale with filet mignon fajitas, served with tequila sunrise sauce.
Or do what we did and opt for the healthiest fajitas we think we’ve ever eaten for a complete meal that’s sensible, but still indulgent.
Start with table-side guacamole and ask for lettuce cups instead of chips. Accompany that with a 120-calorie Patrón Skinny Margarita made with agave nectar and fresh lime, not some nasty artificially sweetened mix.
Then choose from shrimp al pastor served with pineapple and a mango habañero sauce; grilled red snapper with chipotle crema and sweet sautéed peppers; or spicy rare ahi tuna, pan-seared and served with soy ginger sauce. (Ask them to go easy on the salt on that last one, the tuna is perfect on its own.)
Each is served on a bed of julienned zucchini and yellow squash and mango-jicama slaw instead of rice and beans, plus your choice of Bibb lettuce cups or corn tortillas for building your fitness-friendly tacos.
Best of all, the seafood fajitas arrive piping hot, but not on a smoking, sizzling platter.
Because the only thing worse than a fajita facial is a seafood fajita facial.
