There was a time when anything even slightly Mexican that was cooked in my kitchen involved a fluorescent colored spice mix packet. At the time I just assumed it was more convenient.
I will admit the packets maybe marginally more convenient than mixing up your own chicken fajita seasoning. But mixing your own fajita seasoning costs only a few cents on the dollar, tastes better and has no mystery ingredients in it.

I like the fact that it has no mystery ingredients! We make a lot of our own spice mixtures too, but never actually set up a jar so we'd have it when we need it. I'm not sure why...it makes sense! Definitely going to try your mix! Visiting from Tasty Tuesdays!
