Embrace the Flavour: Brazilian Lime Margaritas and Fajitas

If you're looking to elevate your Tex-Mex experience, look no further than pairing Brazilian Lime Margaritas with sizzling fajitas. This dynamic duo brings together zesty citrus notes with savoury, spice-infused grilled meats and veggies, creating a taste sensation that's perfect for gatherings or weeknight dinners.

The Perfect Pairing

Brazilian Lime Margarita: The key to this refreshing cocktail is the vibrant flavours of freshly squeezed Brazilian lime juice combined with a generous glug of agave spirit.

Fajitas: Fajitas are a Tex-Mex classic featuring marinated grilled meats (often beef, chicken, or shrimp) served with sautéed onions and bell peppers, all wrapped in warm tortillas.

Why They Work Together

  • Citrus Harmony: The bright lime flavours in the margarita complement the zesty marinade used in fajitas.

  • Contrasting Heat: The cool, citrusy notes of the margarita provide a refreshing contrast to the spiciness of the fajitas.

  • Balanced Refreshment: Together, they create a balanced meal that's both satisfying and refreshing.

Recipe: Classic Chicken Fajitas


  • 1 lb chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 2 bell peppers (any colour), thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Flour tortillas, for serving
  • Optional toppings: salsa, guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheese


  1. Marinate the Chicken: In a bowl, combine the chicken slices with lime juice, minced garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.

  2. Prepare the Fajitas: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced onions and bell peppers, and sauté until they start to soften, about 5 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the skillet and set aside.

  3. Cook the Chicken: In the same skillet, add the marinated chicken slices. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and slightly charred.

  4. Combine and Serve: Return the sautéed vegetables to the skillet with the cooked chicken. Toss everything together for a minute to combine.

  5. Serve: Warm the flour tortillas. Spoon the chicken and vegetable mixture onto the tortillas. Add your favourite toppings such as salsa, guacamole, sour cream, or shredded cheese.
