This isn’t really a recipe post, since all you need to do is mix some dry spices, but we love this combination of spices, so I thought I’d share. I found this recipe a couple of years ago and it’s still a favorite. We use it most often when making Chicken Tortilla Soup (both on the chicken tenders when we’re putting them in the oven, and in the soup itself).
Don’t let the number of ingredients scare you off! These are pretty basic and you probably have all of them in your spice cabinet already.
You’ll need this much of each of the following
Fajita Seasoning (Found as Taco Seasoning I at AllRecipes.com)
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
All you have to do is mix up all the spices & sprinkle it on the food liberally. Store in an air-tight container – preferably a cute little mason jar.
