For the second day of Tortillas Dishes, I decided to make a Fajitas. Only after taking this up, I realized I was confused between a Fajita, taco, and for that matter the quesadillas as well. So that meant I do some research on the different types of Tortilla dishes, especially how different a Fajita is from a Taco or a Quesadilla.
For a Fajitas, frilled meat is served with tortillas and assorted condiments on the side. This can be eaten like a taco or burrito style.
A Quesadillas is a large tortilla, folded in half, stuffed with Queso (cheese) and other optional stuffing, then grilled on the outside.
Tacos are traditionally small palm-sized tortilla, warmed, and served open-faced or lightly folded. The stuffing can be spiced meat/vegetable garnish. These can be optionally served with cheese.
Burritos on the other hand is similar to a taco in ingredients but use a larger tortilla served as a closed, cylindrical "wrap".
So coming back to the Fajitas, apart from the grilled meat, condiments, to make a vegetarian version, you could use grilled bell pepper, grilled onions.
I made Vegetarian Fajitas with Refined Beans, Grilled Corn along with Fresh onion, roasted corn, and tomato salsa on a bed of tomato salsa sauce.
Flour Tortillas - 2 big
Tomato Salsa - 2 tbsp

Heat a pan with oil, toss the tender beans, add finely chopped onions, chopped jalapenos. Add salt and fajita seasonings. Toss everything and combine well.
For the Grilled corn
Smear the oil a bit on the boiled sweet corn, grill it over high flame till it's grilled on all sides. Sprinkle salt over it
To assemble the Fajitas
Warm the tortillas over a hot pan.
Transfer to a serving plate, spread the tomato salsa in the middle, spread a base of beans over it followed by Roasted Corn onion and tomato salsa.
Fold on both sides and serve.
