This has been the summer of salsa for me. I am currently probably eating two to three gallons of salsa a week. I used to buy two 32 oz jars a week now I buy more and make trips to the store for extra at weak times. I think it is just that salsa is so good in the heat and a few weeks ago while stocking up on chips, cheese, and salsa I came across this fajita seasoning mix. I was curious because we like fajitas and usually just grill up chicken add in some peppers and onions and call it done but a seasoning to make fajitas I had to try.
First you grill up some meat and we always use chicken because it is cheap, healthy, and easy. I have one of those George Foreman style paninni sandwich maker things and just do two chicken breasts.
Then I sauteed some onions in a pan with a table spoon of oil or so. They cook up till about 3/4 done before adding the meat and seasoning with some water to mix it all up. I only use onions because it is 1.29 for a three pound bag of white onions and bell peppers are running a buck each. Originally I started with just one onion but grilled onions are great so now I do like three onions to the two chicken breasts.
Here everything is all cooked up and let me tell you something, this fajita mix is the bomb. I don't know what is in it but even my wife is like "This fajita mix is just about as good as any restaurant." Now that I have looked at other stores besides Aldi, I see that most grocery stores carry some sort of fajita mix and if you like fajitas then you must try this stuff. I have had this for almost every night for two weeks and I need to go back to the store to get more. This has also been a year for crunchy tacos so this mix goes into a crunchy shell with some refried beans, alot of salsa, and the mix.
A few years ago my wife bought some jalapeno refried beans and I have been hooked ever since. The only problem I ever come across is occasionally my son wants some refried beans and he does not like jalapenos.
If you are bored with your everyday cooked chicken and boring vegetables than I must recommend getting some of this fajita mix stuff. I think there must be crack in it or something to make it so good.
