Can I sub greek yogurt for sour cream on fajitas?

I see alot of posts about subing greek yogurt for for sour cream in BAKING but what about subing it in fajitas or even tacos for that matter? I mean full fat greek yogurt. It's for black bean/red pepper/red onion/pineapple fajitas specifically.

I've been doing it for years - even with regular full fat plain yogurt - for any recipe or situation that calls for sour cream

Fajitas, a semi-old Tejano cowboy campfire dish, has- like the taco- strayed so far from the original that there's really no right or wrong.

Yes, it works. I don't like sour cream on things so I almost always use greek yogurt. If you like the taste, that's really all that matters in my opinion.

It would taste just fine. When I use sour cream on tacos, etc. I usually thin it with some water so it doesn't go on in clumps/dollops. I would do the same with yogurt, Greek or otherwise.

I love putting full-fat Greek yogurt on fajitas and tacos!

I would say yes. Stir it well before using it so it has a smooth consistency. The flavor is not going to be exactly the same, but it would work.
