A fajita bar is an ideal menu for a party. It is filling and doesn't require lots of cooking and ingredients. It is also a great option for a large crowd or picky eaters, as they can choose what they want on their plates and tailor the food to the fit their needs. A buffet is also a great way to get people moving and talking to one another. A fajita bar gives you lots of room for creativity; serve classic style or try something completely new.

Classic and Traditional

A classic fajita bar is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Serve the meal buffet style; use food warmers for the meat, beans, sautéed peppers and onion combo, and tortillas. You can decide between serving chicken or flank steak; both should be tossed in a fajita seasoning. Include salsa, shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and avocado.


The great thing about fajitas is that you can tailor it for any eating preference. Instead of serving up meat, seafood or chicken, just serve black beans, pinto beans, corn and Spanish rice. You can still serve up the traditional red or green peppers mixed with onions. Options are limitless when it comes to toppings; stick to the traditional route or add an interesting twist. Instead of cheddar cheese, opt for crumbled feta or mozzarella. Offer sautéed zucchini or squash alongside more conventional fajita vegetables, and have fun with different types of salsa.

Camarones Apretados

Make your fajita bar stand out by serving camarones apretados instead of chicken or steak. Apretados are prawns wrapped in a piece of bacon that are then sautéed until the bacon is crispy and the prawn cooked through. They are delicious served in place of steak or chicken for fajitas. Serve the apretados with all the traditional fajitas condiments, including tortillas, rice, salsa, avocado and cheese.


When serving a buffet-style meal, ensure that the guests have everything they need right at their fingertips. Prepare the serving area ahead of time so you don't have to worry during the party. Place the utensils, napkins, and plates in front of the warming food platters. Have spoons and tongs set out for easy access to condiments and food. Place extra meat, chicken, prawns or beans in the oven so they are easy to restock throughout the evening. Serve all the food on a brightly coloured tablecloth and display fresh vegetables, herbs or flowers on the table.
