Homemade Fajita Seasoning
Remember the first time you had fajitas? I sure do! My mother and I were nibbling tortilla chips and sipping iced teas (at a chain restaurant that shall remain nameless here). That’s when I first heard the approaching sizzle. Everyone else in the restaurant had their heads on swivel as the waiter set the cast iron skillet of beef and chicken fajitas on our table. No lie: I’m pretty sure my jaw hit the floor. There’s just something so mesmerizing and visceral about a sizzling platter of meat and veggies! We quickly got to work, loading up our tortillas with creamy guacamole, peppers, onions and meat. The DIY aspect of eating fajitas quickly became my second favorite thing about the whole experience. The BEST part, however, was the taste! What kind of witchcraft went into making something that delicious? Even at that young age, I knew there just had to be some sort of special fajita seasoning mix at play.
