If you are a foodie, you have surely heard of National Fajita Day. This Mexican tradition has been embraced by Tex-Mex cultures. Fajitas are delicious Mexican staples, and preparing them is simple. These savory treats can be a perfect food for a party, but what is so special about this dish? Let’s find out. In this article, we’ll discuss the basic ingredients and how to cook these tasty treats.
Tex-Mex fajitas are a popular Tex-Mex dish
Unlike most Mexican dishes, fajitas are not traditional, and their origins go back to the 1930s when the cowboys in the American Southwest were paid in part with skirt steak, which would otherwise be wasted. Instead, ranchers used the skirt steak and grilled it over an open campfire, adding lime to the mixture to make it more flavorful. It was later added to flour tortillas and became a Tex-Mex favorite.
Fajitas are a popular TexMex dish. These grilled pieces of beef or chicken are topped with onions, tomato, and cilantro. These Tex-Mex dishes are typically served on hand-rolled flour tortillas. During the 1970s, the Tex-Mex fajita was made in Austin, Texas by Sonny Falcon. He sold the fajitas at fairs and rodeos, and later at Ninfa Rodriguez Laurenzo’s restaurant.
The origins of fajitas are a fascinating story. It all started with Mexican ranch workers. They lived along the Rio Grande in West Texas and were often given the least desirable parts of steers. This is where the dish got its name. They grilled skirt steaks, which was a tough cut of beef. Their name, fajita, derives from the Spanish word “faja,” which means girdle or belt.
Many people don’t know that beef was used in Tex-Mex cuisine until the 1940s. The popularity of this cuisine has grown and now many Mexican restaurants incorporate Texan ingredients. Tex-Mex fajitas are a great way to experience a delicious Tex-Mex meal! Just make sure to add a side of guacamole to your Tex-Mex meal.
