History of the Fajita
'The history of fajitas can be traced back to the cattle ranches of West Texas and Northern Mexico, where ranchers would use the tougher cuts of meat, such as skirt steak, directly over an open flame. This practice, known as “barbacoa,” was popular among Mexican cowboys, also known as vaqueros. These cowboys would cook their beef with a mix of onions, peppers, and other spices.
In the early 1930s, fajitas started gaining popularity in South Texas, particularly in the Rio Grande Valley. The dish was often served at outdoor festivals, and the sizzling sound of the hot skillet was a draw for curious onlookers. Eventually, fajitas made their way onto the menus of Mexican restaurants in the United States, where they became a staple of Tex-Mex cuisine.
The name “fajita” comes from the Spanish word “faja,” which means “belt” or “sash.” This is because the skirt steak used in fajitas is cut from the beef’s diaphragm muscle, which is long and thin like a belt.' from the website tijuanaflats.com
