Happy Sunday Everyone! 

Today, I need your 5 minutes to try this amazing, homemade and easy Fajita Seasoning Recipe! 

No lengthy recipe for lazy Sundays! What do say? I say, "yes"! 

Only a simple spice-mix which alone can brighten-up any meat you plan to throw on grill today! 

So, I thought Homemade Fajita Seasoning will be best for this sunny day! This clean blend of flavorful dry spices can brighten up flavor of fajitas. It is Gluten free, starch free, and above all super delicious! 

Honestly, not only for chicken fajitas, I use fajita seasonings so many more ways. Spice-up marinades, add zing in soups or stews. Some lazy weekends, I simply grill/pan sear any meat or even fish with generous coat of fajita seasoning... Then serve it any way I like! Stuff in tacos, top on salads, or add to pasta! I usually mix a 1/3 cup batch and it is gone before I know it. 

Also, this fajita seasoning recipe is salt free. I intentionally leave-out salt because I like to add that as per need of the recipe. Mixing it in seasoning...
