I was at the grocery store last week and one of the items on my list was “1 packet of Fajita seasoning.” I was in the aisle, standing in front of the packets and thought, I’ve made taco seasoning – I can probably make this too. So I didn’t buy it.
On the day we were supposed to have fajitas I did a quick search online and found what I needed. I tweaked it a bit for our personal taste and it was great. I was very pleased with the outcome. So here it is:
Homemade Fajita Seasoning
- 3 tbsp. cornstarch
- 2 tbsp. chili powder
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. paprika
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 3 tsp. chicken bouillon
- 1-1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne powder
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/4 tsp. chipotle seasoning
Combine all the ingredients together. This recipe yields 3 “packets” worth of seasoning, approximately 1/4 cup of seasoning each.
To make fajitas with your seasoning, add 1/4 cup seasoning and 2-3 tbsp. of water to cooked chicken (shredded, cubed or in strips) in a large skillet over medium heat. Add green pepper, red pepper and onion strips. Cook until veggies are tender and serve in warm tortillas. We like ours with sour cream and salsa.
Why I do what I do ~ One day I was feeling particularly disheveled and said, mostly to myself, “I feel like a wreck.” Chloe overheard me and replied, “I feel like a regular person.”
