But I can't always go to Los Margaritas for the best Mexican food in the
But I have found an alternative that will do for now. Home made fajitas...YUM
The seasoning mix I found on the internet (Chickens in the Road) is very good, has low sodium and is good in lots of other dishes. I made the mix and stored it in a recycled jar and I never measure, I just dump some in until the color is good. Taste....then dump some more if needed.( Dump is truly a Southern term to be used in moderation.) Great on chicken, steak or ground beef.
I would really love to add peppers to the mix, but alas, no one in my family likes peppers but me. So I have to wait until I go to Los Margaritas for truly peppery, oniony fajitas.
Here is what you need to make awesome fajitas.
2 Tbs cornstarch
4 tsp chili powder
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp sugar (optional, I don't add any)
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper(or more if you like HOT)
1/2 tsp cumin
Mix everything together with a fork in a glass bowl. Store in a baggie, jar or spice bottle.

Tonight I had a pack of thin cut round steak (on sale for $1.57) that I cut into 1/8 inch diameter strips and cut each strip about 1 1/2 inch long. Toss those in your skillet with a pinch of olive oil and as many onions as you like. And I wish I could toss in peppers now, but no one will eat them. Grrrrr.... Stir fry until meat and onions are done, about 7 to 8 minutes.
While the meat/onions are cooking chop up some lettuce, get out the tortillas, sour cream, cheese, salsa and anything else you like on your fajitas.
