Fajita Seasoning

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Most of the large supermarkets offer fajita seasoning packets. Many are quite expensive and tend to contain lots of salt and flavour enhancers to make them last longer. This simple mix tastes great and can be kept in an airtight container for a couple of weeks.

The mix is just sprinkled over cubed chicken and fried with peppers and onions to make  fajitas. Add a little boiling water to the pan when the veg and chicken are cooked. This can be served with Wholemeal Wraps or Flour Tortillas or over Brown Rice
This recipe makes enough seasoning for 2 chicken breasts.

• 3 teaspoons of cornflour
• 2 teaspoons of chili powder
• 1 teaspoon of paprika
• 1 chicken or vegetable stock cube. (Or low sodium cubes). Crumbled
• 1 teaspoon of paprika
• ½ teaspoon garlic powder
• ½ teaspoon in cumin. (Crushed seeds or powdered would both work)
• ½ teaspoon dried chili flakes (more if you like it spicy)
• ½ cayenne pepper
• 2 sweeteners. Crushed with the back of a spoon

  1. Combine all the ingredients. Transfer to an airtight container until you're ready to use it.
