If you thought it was only grated cheese that goes into fajitas, you need to do only one thing: think again! Here we have a delicious Indian spin on the Tex-Mex classic that we guarantee will rock your world. And yes, there's a fair amount of cheese involved – just not as you know it.

W​e know FoodTribe founder and Spam-king James May loves paneer, he tells us all the time. When we carried out a recent poll — asking whether you have tried paneer or not — a whopping 36% of you said you have not, but you'd like to. Treat this as a shining beacon of opportunity to do just that. Try it. And end cheese future FOMO in its tracks.

Thanks to its texture, Apetina Paneer not only adds extra bite to your fajitas but also draws in the smoky and spicy flavours that make Tex-Mex so moreish. This dish is also perfect for vegetarians right now who are probably exhausted from weeks of dodging turkey, ham hock and pigs in blankets chat and menu planning by now.

W​hat exactly is paneer? It's soft, mild and fresh-tasting: it's a type of cheese that has been enjoyed in India for centuries and traditionally it's made with citrus juice and milk. You can marinate it, grill it, fry it, or pop it into soups or stews. Its porous texture means it's fantastic at soaking up flavour, making it the perfect way to create some mind-blowing dishes. But there's more...

Now Apetina Paneer is taking on halloumi and tofu in 2021 to be your go-to ingredient to liven up veggie dishes and mid-week feasts at a time when people around the world are waking up to this amazingly versatile ingredient and noticing it's tasty as hell! And it's healthy too, fyi: it actually aids digestion.

We are 100% behind this unbridled mission towards world domination, so you'll be hearing a lot more about Apetina Paneer on FoodTribe in the new year. Expect more super easy and mouthwatering recipes to follow. For now, let us know if you have swerved the never-ending turkey leftovers by making these delish fajitas!

  • This looks delicious! I tried making paneer once substituting farmer’s cheese (similar style); it didn’t work. Paneer is really the only cheese firm enough for this type of recipe. Though I’m wondering if using an extra - firm tofu would also be a good substitute.
