    Fajitas gained popularity in the late 60s slowly becoming one of those iconic dishes you can instantly smell from across the room. The reason?

    I don’t know about you, but if they are on the menu, I’m ordering them. There is just something about a mix of heat, char, smoke, and more that makes them irresistible. Naturally, I wanted to recreate those flavors at home.

    What about the kiddos? Chances are they might need the mild version. For that, try cutting the chile powder in half.

    If you are feeling really adventurous, you can play around with the types of chile powder you us. An ancho chile powder will be deep, rich, and almost smoky-tasting whereas an Aleppo pepper will give you a more subtle and a slightly fruity heat.
