Did you know-  Fajitas were invented Mexican ranch workers? As part of their payment, they were typically given the less desirable cuts of meat. Traditionally, skirt steak has been used which tends to be quite tough. As a result, the cowboys would add lime to soften the meat and add spices for flavor.

The dish was largely unknown until it was brought to the United States in the 1960s. It was then popularized in Mexican restaurants in the 1990s. Since then, fajita spice mix has evolved into a variety of uses. Some of these include added flavor for dips, a base for chilis, and a grilling rub for meat and vegetables.
