I'm interested in trying various homemade mixes (no/less preservatives and packaging, cheaper in some cases, and I'm just plain curious) so I plan to test one every so often and will review it here.
One of our favorite meals is fajitas, and though the seasoning mix is not expensive, I wondered about making my own. After an on-line search, I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. It does call for 11 ingredients (whew!), but we had everything on hand except the chili powder, which I omitted. The nice thing is that the recipe makes enough for 3 batches, and the instructions for making the fajitas are exactly what is printed on the back of the store-bought packages.
During last night's supper, I told my husband that the fajitas were made with a homemade seasoning mix. He said they were delicious, and even some of the best he's ever had, so I guess it's a keeper! I was a little more mixed (no pun intended). A few bites didn't seem very flavorful, and then I'd get a bit of a zinger. Overall, though, I think we liked it enough to stick with it.
