I have always wanted to come up with my own Fajita Mix. First of all the amount of additives and sodium in your standard mix makes this healthy meal quite unhealthy. I just kept adding spices in small measurements until I got just the right flavor. I even went out of my way, it wasn’t really, but I made tortilla’s which I haven’t done in years to go along with this meal. I was more then estatic with the results of it all combined.
I also added the recipe with chicken, mind you doing this with beef would also be pretty damn wonderful. Adding the juice of a lime while it’s reducing is all this needs to take it from good to superb. Now with my own mixes for tacos and fajita’s I am quite happy knowing that I get the flavors of packaged mixes but with out all the added chemicals and salt. A great addition to any family who is looking to make a family favorite healthier.
