How To Make Salt Free Fajita Seasoning :
I am getting ready to make some quick Fajitas for dinner so I needed to make some seasoning for the chicken and shrimp. Here is a quick and easy way to mix up a batch for yourself. This is much cheaper and more delicious than the packets of seasoning blends you can purchase at the grocery store. The added bonus for this one is that it is salt-free and gluten-free!
I buy my spices in larger containers because of the massive cost differential! Larger containers purchased either online, in a big box or warehouse store or at a local wholesale grocer can save you tons of money on expensive spices. I keep mine in my pantry closets where they are temperature controlled and in the dark. This allows them to have a much longer shelf life than if they were stored in the cupboards next to or on top of my stove or in the warm kitchen in general.
I love to share how to make your own seasoning blends. You most likely have all these items on hand and being able to blend them yourself will save you money and help you use what you paid for without it going stale. This blend is comprised of simple ingredients that most people will have on their spice rack.
Today I used equal amounts of garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, oregano, paprika and cilantro. You can choose to add salt if you like, in which case I would add 1 tablespoon. You can also add black pepper and or chipotle or ancho chilli powder if you like, depending on your love of heat and spices.
This is easy to mix up and store in a mason jar. This amount is enough to season about four pounds of meat. Keep this with a tight-fitting lid in a dark cool and dry place for up to six months.
I hope that you try this soon! I know you are going to love it!
