National Fajita Day

National Fajita Day, August 18th, honors the smoky delectability of the savory Tex-Mex flavor found in fajitas.


Mexican vaqueros in Southwest Texas in the early 1930s created what we've come to love all over the United States. They created the fajita by using throwaway cuts of beef. However, it wasn't long before they became a staple in the area. These cowboys cooked the steak over an open fire or grill. They served it with flour or corn tortillas once cooked. The fajita was elevated in later years by fresh Pico de gallo, acamole, and southwestern spices. New audiences appeared soon as the popular meal for hardworking cowboys was introduced. The fajita became a destination food in the culinary world.

When is National Taco Day?

fajitas brought a vibrant twist to Tex-Mex menus as their fame grew. Patrons were delighted by sizzling platters full of bright peppers, onions, and a delectable aroma. The menu choices beyond tender steak also broadened the fajita spectrum. With newly made tortillas, sweet shrimp, lean chicken, or pork arrived at tables with adoration. Most Mexican restaurants in the United States served fajitas by the 1980s. In the modern culinary kitchen, lime, cilantro, and a slew of vegetables make their way into a fajita. The delectable seasonings and throats are just starting to erupt, adding to that.

Grilling with mesquite gives another flavor boost. It gives a smoky flavor and bacon adds crunch, while bacon adds crunch. Of course, who could forget the cheese? Fajitas are still popular today, with their festive displays. The fajita has come a long way from skirt steak trimmings!
