Enjoy Fajitas at Your Favorite Mexican Restaurant
National Fajita Day is August 18. Fajitas are a flavorful Mexican dish that includes sizzling vegetables, savory protein, and flavorful seasonings. This National Fajita Day, enjoy fajitas at your favorite Mexican restaurant!
The concept of fajitas is believed to date back to the early 1930s. Mexican vaqueros in Texas created fajitas from throwaway beef cuts, which was part of their payment for their labor. They cooked this beef over an open fire and served it with tortillas, pico de gallo, guacamole, and southwestern spices. Over the years, this dish went from a cheap and efficient meal to a restaurant favorite.
The first time a fajita was sold was in 1969 when Sonny Falcon sold a fajita at this Kyle, Texas concession booth. In 1971, the word “fajita” appeared in the Oxford English Dictionary for the first time. By 1982, Chef George Weidmann from the Hyatt Regency in August put “sizzling fajitas” on his restaurant menu and diners couldn’t get enough.
