For a while I’ve wanted to try and make my own fajita spice mix. I just feel the packets you can buy in supermarkets are unnecessarily high in salt. Anyway this was my experiment yesterday, to see if I could lower the salt without compromising on taste.
I can tell you my recipe needs amending slightly, perhaps a touch of salt was needed because the shop bought ones taste better. But if any of you can make recommendations to adjust this recipe to make it taste a bit better please let me know!
My spice mix included:
3 teaspoons mild chilli powder
2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 clove crushed garlic
I mixed the spices together and rubbed all over chopped chicken breast then fried in a small amount of sunflower oil. I then added the red onion and peppers, before serving into Mission deli Multigrain wraps with some salsa and guacamole.
The guacamole however came out a treat, so tasty. I braved chopping up chillis too for the recipe.
The ingredient for this was:
The juice of 1 lime
1/2 a red onion
1/2 a red chilli
One clove of garlic
Simply mash the avocado, squeeze the juice of one lime and mix in. Crush the garlic, chop and de-seed the chilli and chop the onion. Then mix all of this together.
You can alter this recipe by adding tomatoes and coriander for example.
