Make it Monday! Fajita Seasoning Mix
Image courtesy of busycooks.about.com
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 t dried oregano (optional).
a pinch of red pepper flakes (for some heat, also optional)
If you like a really thick sauce you can add 1 T cornstarch to the mix. You can also prepare a large batch of this ahead of time. This recipe is so versatile! My friend's daughter had a food allergy to garlic when she was small, all you have to do is omit the garlic powder! You also avoid the preservatives and sodium that are in most store bought seasoning packages.
You can use it for fajitas, or as a steak rub, or even in a spicy chili!
