Last week I posted on my Facebook page how I ran out of my usual packet Fajita mix and so decided to make my own. After taste testing them this week (they are delishimo!) I knew I had to share them with you!
Running out of my normal spice mix.....I know it's tragic, I should be more organised shouldn't I ???
Well this sort of inspired me.... for a while I had been thinking I should try and make my own spice mixes from scratch and I just hadn't gotten around to it. This was just the kick up the "you know what" that I needed!
So far we have eaten the Fajita mix, (which was delicious but spicier than the bland packet mix I normally buy) and last night we had the chicken seasoning rubbed on chicken breasts with a little olive oil. I added some boiled new potatoes and a green salad to rave reviews from hubby and my teenage sons.
Don't you just love a super easy meal that gets rave reviews? I was hoping for some leftovers for the next days lunches, but it was so yummy there no chance of that!
Don't they look so cute?
I just used 4 jars from my re-cycling pile and some fab labels to
jazz them up a little. The whole process really wasn't very difficult
or time consuming at all.
Now that we've taste tested them for you, and confirmed the yumminess factor I thought I would share the recipes I used, so here they are:
We had Chicken Fajitas for dinner this week and they were fabulous, but a bit spicier than the usual bland packet mix, so you may want to reduce the chilli powder & cayenne pepper if your family don't like things too spicy. I sliced my chicken and drizzled it with a little olive oil, then mixed in about a tablespoon of the mix.
Next I fried it all up with some onion and capsicum then served with lettuce and cucumber on the side.
It was super delishimo!!!!
I got the recipe from here and you can read all the reviews where people talk about different ways they have altered or used the recipe to give you some more ideas.
I got the recipe from here and you can read the reviews which describe different ways people have used this rub, from baking, frying, marinading on chicken & pork also.
You can scale both these recipes up, which is what I did, (I tripled them) and store it them an airtight jar for future use. Just measure out all the ingredients and mix well. I also give the jar a good shake prior to using.
Hope you enjoyed this post and you have lots of fun making your own spice and seasoning mixes.
