Growing up, we didn’t eat out often (like never) so it was always a really special treat to go to any restaurant. When we did go somewhere to eat, we often chose Mexican food because our whole family enjoyed it and because it was pretty much the only non-chain decent restaurant in our small town.
I almost always ordered the kids tacos until one day when I was in high school and I decided to branch out and order the fajita salad (I think I was trying to be healthy). The salad I ordered may not have been healthy, but it was delicious and I loved the flavors of cumin, chili powder, onions and peppers in the fajitas.
Now as a grown up, non-kids-meal-tacos eating, amateur food blogger, I’ve graduated to grown up (real food) versions of my favorite foods of yesteryear. We still don’t eat out that often, but now I”m the mom insisting we cook at home. My kids have already learned to love the taste of foods like fajitas and they skipped the kids meal phase all together.
This healthy fajita seasoning spice blend is great on my fajita slow cooker chicken, or fajita chicken salad or steak fajita salad recipes. It also works as a taco seasoning if needed and can spice up an omelet.
- ¼ cup Chili Powder

- 2 tablespoons Paprika
- 1 tablespoon Onion Powder

- 1 teaspoon Cayenne Powder (optional)
