Fajitas: A fun dinner for everyone!

Where do fajitas come from? Fajitas originated in West Texas in the 1930s. Mexican ranch workers working along the US-Mexico border wanted a tasty way to incorporate skirt steak into their meals, and that’s how the fajita was born! By the way, skirt steak contains a decent amount of fat and is very tasty. It’s the meat 100% used in fajitas in Texas and elsewhere.

These days, recipes have evolved to include so much more than skirt steak, but the basics are still the same…meat and seasoned vegetables, all wrapped in a tortilla and served with a dollop of guacamole.
