Modernise Your Fajitas: Fajita Bowl Recipes

A new analysis of Google Trends data undertaken by HelloFresh reveals a huge rise in popularity of the ‘fajita bowl.’ The household dinnertime staple has had a modern makeover with a healthy twist and HelloFresh food experts are here for it.

National Fajita Day

It seems FoodTok have jumped on the bandwagon just in time for National Fajita Day on the 18th of August as TikTok views for #Fajita hit 87 million views and growing.

However, it’s a newer food trend that’s got everyone talking.

Up 99% in the last month, Google searches for ‘Fajita Bowl’ are on the rise, with #fajitabowl totalling over 1.5m views on TikTok.

What is a fajita bowl?

A fajita bowl is a modern take on Mexican fajita recipes. Ditching the traditional tortilla wrap, the fajita bowl marries together everything that’s delicious about the fajitas loved far and wide but gives it a healthier twist.

Akin to Emily Mariko’s salmon bowl, which went viral on TikTok, the dish embodies the growing trend of Buddha Bowls and Burrito Bowls and infuses it with fajita flavours for an exciting, fun twist.
