Ingredients for a Fajita Seasoning Mix :
I like to add a little smoked paprika, but if you don’t have any, don’t worry your mix will still be delicious!
3 Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp paprika
1 Tbsp sugar
1-1/2 ts. onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp smoked paprika
½ tsp cumin
⅛ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
Ingredients for a Fajitas :
6 flour tortillas
200 g meatless chicken strips
3 Tbsp Fajita Seasoning Mix
3 red, yellow pepper
2 large onion
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.
Use three tablespoons per 1 lb of meatless chicken strips or veggies.If grilling, rub mix on meatless chicken strips and let set (covered) in fridge for 1-3 hours. (you can also squeeze a little lime juice and olive oil on them before rubbing with seasoning) and bake at 350 degrees.
Then I saute peppers and onions on the stove top with a little more seasoning until tender and mix them together with the meatless chicken strips . You can serve serve them in flour tortillas with , guacamole, cheese, lettuce, black beans and pico de gallo .
