I’ve talked before about how store bought seasoning packets usually have added MSG, preservatives and SUGAR, which is totally unnecessary.  Check out the ingredients in a store bought fajita mix:

Now I know sometimes convenience foods are well…convenient, but it is so easy to make your own seasoning mixes and you probably already have the spices on hand.  This way you don’t have to worry about partially hydrogenated soybean oil or any other weird ingredient and can feel good about what you’re serving your families.  Another great benefit of making your own seasonings is that you can play around with the spice combinations and create something that you love.

  • 2 tsp paprika

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in an air tight container and mix thoroughly.
  2. Store any extra seasoning in the air tight container with the lid on.
  3. Add about 2-3 Tbsp of seasoning for every 1 lb of chicken or beef for fajitas.
