Fajita Seasoning Mix

Fajita Seasoning Mix

Makes the equivalent of one store-bought packet.

This is a great thing to have on hand. I eliminated a few ingredients that I didn't have -- and that you might not either? -- such as crushed chicken bouillon cube.

Adapted from:

1 T. cornstarch
2 t. chili powder
1 t. salt
1 t. paprika
1 t. sugar
1/2 t. onion powder
1/8 t. ground cumin
dash crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 c. water
1 to 1-1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
1 T. olive oil

Combine all ingredients, except for water, chicken, and olive oil, to create seasoning.

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken strips in olive oil, until cooked through. Add seasoning to skillet and toss to coat. Add water, a little bit at a time (you may not need an entire 1/2 cup), to combine flavors.

Serve with all your favorite fajita fixings!

A Note From The Little Lady: When the chicken was just about cooked, I added in 1 cup of sliced onions before seasoning. It proved to be a great addition! You could also add green/red sliced peppers at this point too.
