Fajita Seasoning Mix

* 1 tbsp cornstarch
* 2 tsp chili powder
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 tsp paprika
* 1 tsp sugar
* 1 crushed chicken bullion cube
* 1/2 tsp onion powder
* 1/4 tsp garlic powder
* 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
* 1/4 tsp cumin

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.  Approximately 2 tbsp replace a pre-packaged seasoning mix.  This recipe makes about 4 tbsp of mix, so enough to use it twice.

We love chicken fajitas, and it would be unusual for me to not have the basic ingredients (peppers, onion,s chicken, tortillas) on hand to make them any night of the week...except for the fajita seasoning.  But now that I have found this recipe, I would never go back to store bought seasoning packets.  We make chicken fajitas, but if we were going to make beef ones I would replace the chicken bullion with beef bullion.  My guess is that you will have all these seasonings on hand as I did, so it was a cinch to throw together.  While the chicken and veggies were cooking both big kids told me it smelled fabulous, and then when we all ate it, it was even better!  This recipe is definitely a keeper.
