3 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. salt
1 Tbsp. paprika
1 Tbsp. sugar
2-1/2 tsp. crushed chicken bouillon cube
1-1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. cumin
Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Pour into small glass or plastic container, seal tightly and store in a cool, dry place. Makes the equivalent of 3 packets of commercial or purchased Fajita Seasoning Mix.
When ready to use add three tablespoons of the Fajita Seasoning Mix and 1/2 - 1 cups water (depending on how thick you like it). Reduce heat to low and simmer.
I did the pricing and figured to make this recipe the total cost is 0.50 when you buy your ingredients from the bulk barn. Since the recipe can be used 3 times that equals ~ 0.17 cents a serving!!! A savings from the $1.00 packages you buy for a one time use!!! Also when discussing this over with Micah we figured that we also know what is going into the mix which makes it healthier when we don't have all the extra additives in it!!
While looking for a Fajita recipe I came across this Taco one as well. I really liked it so now I use it as well. You can add more crushed hot peppers if you want it to be hotter!
2 teaspoons instant minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon crushed red peppers
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Combine all ingredients together. Makes enough for one time use. When ready to use just add to meat mixture with 1/4-1/2 cup of water and let simmer. If mixture is too thick add 1/4 cup more water.
Let me know of any other convenience packages that you make!!
