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.
So here is the recipe I used for my first EP expereince:
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
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.Thanks Pinterest for the fajitaspiration
