My family loves fajita night, but I can't bring myself to spend two dollars on an envelope full of spices I already have available in my kitchen. Not when those two dollars could easily be spent on something more vital, like diapers or laundry detergent or strawberry and cream frappuccinos.
This recipe is simple, cheap and delicious. The seasoning is slightly spicy and perfectly salty. Great for a quick weeknight dinner.
Homemade Fajita Seasoning
Combine: 1 TBSP flour
2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp cumin
To use the seasoning, mix it with about 1/2 cup of water and a splash of lime juice.
In a frying pan, cook some peppers and onions.
Add the seasoning mix combined with the water and lemon juice. Stir well until it coats the veggies and cook until the liquid thickens to a sauce. If necessary, add a splash more water.
Stir in cooked meat (We like grilled chicken. We grill and slice it when we are barbecuing something else another night so that it is ready to go for a super easy fajita night!) and serve.
