Who puts cheese on fajitas? That wasn't even a thing at the "Mexican-American" restaurant we frequented in the 1980s.

make me some tea: Who puts cheese on fajitas? That wasn't even a thing at the "Mexican-American" restaurant we frequented in the 1980s.


This.

Cheese on fajitas kills the grilled flavor of your meat and adds unnecessary fat.

Order a funding quesadilla, dipshiat.

This couple thinks their world is the same as it ever was. They better learn to make those fajitas at home, because the second wave in the fall is going to end restaurants as we knew them.

she probably didn't get her artisanal locally-sourced peanut butter for them either.

I'm trying to figure out who seems like more of a nightmare: the woman who will sit pouting for twenty minutes because she is such a fussy eater she cannot possibly eat fajitas without adding cheese, or the man who will photograph his sad undercheesed wife and post it on Twitter in an attempt to shame the restaurant in the middle of their meal.

At the least, if she ever gets divorced, I now know to avoid dating her.

No wait he has a podcast that is just him yelling about sports and right-wing politics, and his Twitter feed is mixture of pro-Trump Charlie Kirk retweets yelling at libs, him yelling at athletes he thinks are lazy or ungrateful, and him yelling at companies to try to get free stuff off them. Clearly he is the Prime Nightmare and she is just along for the ride.

I'm sure that when the cheese eventually showed up, they complained because the fajitas were cold.

Shredded cheese is not proper fajitas. Maybe some chili con queso if you have some leftover.
 
2020-06-28 11:01:27 AM  
Shredded cheese?

Seriously? Queso fresco or cotija, crumbled if you must have cheese at all. Good fajitas/carnitas don't need that at all.

It's one thing I really loved about a Mexican place in Toledo. Owned and run entirely by first-generation Mexican immigrants (one family, basically everyone in the family worked for the place) and the food was amazing. If you wanted proper carnitas, that was easy. Fish tacos? They were going to be cod or tilapia (the one concession to this place being in Toledo rather than a coast), worked up on a skillet, with chunks of fish the size of your hand. Best tacos I've ever had next to one tiny taqueria in Phoenix.

Cheese was seen as a sign of immaturity. You wanted nachos or a quesadilla? Try the kids' menu. You wanted cheese for your fajita? You had to ask, and it was extra.

Same problem with pizza, actually. Look at a real Neapolitan pizza- proper fresh mozzarella, but rounds of it, and not covering the whole pie. Mountains of plastic-like "cheese" are an American addon.

Cheese has taken over.

It's like the Yelpers episode of South Park came to life and started a Twitter account.

Hey, has anybody pointed out that they're better than everyone else because they don't put cheese on their fajitas?  Oh, it's covered?  Good.

But also fark these biatches and their 'it's the only way she can eat fajitas' bullshiat.
 
2020-06-28 12:03:51 PM  
A) Yeah, you don't put cheese on fajitas.
B) On a lot of Mexican dishes where you do put cheese, you don't use a shredding cheese, you use a grating cheese like cotija.
C) Throw away your farking box graters and get two rasp style graters, one small for cotija, lime zest, etc, and a larger one for jack, cheddar, etc. The small ones are cheap, so maybe get two.
 
2020-06-28 12:35:09 PM  
...and the original tweet seems to have disappeared.  Based on his other posts, people are saying that the same thing should happen to the twit.

A) I'll eat MY food the way I like it thanks.
B) what the Fark is 'shredding cheese' you guys talk about shredded cheddar all the time, I only ever grate that.
C) I have a handheld zester for fruit. Much easier. Small grater for parmesan or pecorino and a box grater for cheddar.

Actually never knew fajitas shouldn't have cheese, I always add some when making them at home.

One o'clock, shredded. Seven o'clock, grated. 11 o'clock, finely shredded. Four o'clock, shaved. Now don't get me started at the deli counter between carved, sliced, and shaved.

The two most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity. Apparently cheese is 47th in the periodic table of elements and shredded cheese is not to be found as a natural state.

By and large I'd agree, but for 3 of the 4 of those most people use the terms grated and shredded interchangeably. Especially since they're usually done on a box grater.
