DIY Fajita Seasoning

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).

DIY Fajita Seasoning #thissarahlovesSince it takes quite a few ingredients, I’ve started making a double recipe and keeping the extra in a small mason jar.
