Fajita Fiesta

Buda, Texas Celebrates the Fajita
4th Annual Fajita Fiesta and Cook-Off

The origin of what we today call fajitas, a Spanish word for skirt steak, dates back to the 1930s Texas ranchlands of the Rio Grande Valley. During cattle roundups, cows were often butchered to feed the ranch hands. Throwaway parts such as the hide, head, entrails, and meat trimmings such as the skirt were given to the Mexican vaqueros or cowboys as part of their pay. Fast forward a few decades and fajitas, still considered scrap meat, was ground up with other scraps to make hamburger meat.
