Time Saving Hack: Spice Mixes

Sometimes I think that instead of a spice shelf, I need a spice closet! I love combining different spices in recipes and over time, we have accumulated quite the collection. In addition to the single spice jars, I have an assortment of homemade spice blends that I can quickly add to a dish. Although at first this may not seem like the biggest time saver, but in reality it is. These blends allow me to quickly plop a tablespoon of seasoning into a dish, rather than search for each individual spice to measure. After mixing my spice blends, I store them in these cute little glass spice jars and label them with my handy label maker. Today I am going to share my recipe for fajita seasoning. 

My fajita seasoning blend consists of chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, cumin, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

After combining the ingredients, mix one tablespoon of the blend with sliced peppers, onions, sliced chicken or beef, and a little bit of olive oil. Bake in an oven heated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-15 minutes. Serve on top of tortillas or over rice and enjoy!

What spice blends do you have in your kitchen?
