I love Mexican foods and drinks, and with Cinco de Mayo this past week, I could not have picked a better time to experiment in the kitchen to make something other than the taco seasoning I always seem to fall back to.
I was actually in the mood for fajitas the other night, steak fajitas, so that was what we had with a little help from google and my spice rack, the seasoning came out perfect and this will be another recipe taped to my spice cabinet!
It takes less than 5 minutes to mix together and you have enough for a steak, chicken, or whatever you choose to spice up for this time around and the next time!
1/4 cup Chili Powder
2 Tablespoons Sea Salt
2 Tablespoons Paprika
1 Tablespoon Onion powder
1 Tablespoon Garlic powder
1 Teaspoon Cayenne pepper (I added a little more just because I like things spicy)
1 Tablespoon Cumin powder
Mix altogether and store in an airtight container or jar
Rub the seasoning on the steak and cook the way you desire- we grilled ours for ten minutes. While meat is cooking, sauté onions and peppers with a little EVOO until soft. Mix meat with veggies and scoop some onto a fajita wrap and enjoy.
You can top with salsa, plain greek yogurt (alternative to sour cream), and/or homemade guacamole.
Making your own seasonings is beneficial to the body. You are consuming no additives and less sodium and for that your body will thank you!
