The Mike & Carla Morning Show

Weekdays 5:00am - 10:00am

We all love Mexican food, but the question this morning, find out what the secret is behind the sizzle in fajitas? The Mike & Carla Morning Show brought this up because Carla Rea never really knew!

Come to find out that The M&C Morning Show were the only ones that didn’t! In fact, when we asked for those to call in that might know, the phone rang off the hook. After finding out , Carla was actually a little let down. She truly thought it was a special sauce or seasoning that made them seem really hot coming out of the kitchen.

Confirmation came in from a few people that had worked and/or managed a Mexican restaurant and they confirmed it. Before we reveal the secret, to know that you can throw whatever you want on a fajita. But for safety sake, they all use only one thing.

With that said, you the server is safe and you get the same effect for the “WOW” factor when your order comes out. Just know for years that both Carla and Mike O’Brian were in the dark when it came to this. Heck, even if you didn’t order a fajita, with all the sizzle and smoke, you left smelling like you did.

So next time you go out for Mexican food and you’re up for ordering a fajita, just now there’s a lot more smoke than mirrors! And don’t think there aren’t enough great Mexican restaurants to try here in Las Vegas! Our city has a great list of place throughout the valley.

In fact, Carla has a suggestion, that if Juan really want to have “flaming fajita’s”, he might want to add some tequila! Not sure if they’re gonna go for that, but you never know. Listen to the segment…and enjoy!
