#87 Homemade fajita seasoning

Everyone loves a bit of  “Mexican” from time to time – actually G and I will eat pretty much anything if it’s wrapped in a tortilla with salsa on top…spicy fish fingers anyone?!

I have a cupboard full of herbs and spices and yet we only seem to have fajitas if the Old El Paso range is on sale at the supermarket. Well last week we had one chicken breast in the fridge and not much else, what to do? A quick peek on Pinterest for “homemade fajita seasoning” and I happened to find the BEST site ever for homemade seasoning – this is going to change your life/cooking forever!

Edible Paradise has EVERYTHING – you’ll never buy a packet mix again! Lemonade, jam, basil oil (?!), even how to make your own almond milk! Have a search through the recipe themes on the left hand side of the page, you will be seriously inspired.4423d66617624de3e1f8ea9bbb0b868f

So here is the recipe I used for my first EP expereince:

Fajita Seasoning
1/4 cup chili powder

2 tablespoons sea salt
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne powder
1 tablespoon cumin powder

Mix well in bowl or jar and store in airtight container.

This makes enough to jar for a later date. I used approx one heaped tablespoon for one chicken breast as I wasn’t sure how spicy it would be. Super cheap, super tasty- this is officially being added to our regular easy weekday meals.DSC_1369Thanks Pinterest for the fajitaspiration
