So truth be told, yesterday I was staring into my fridge and didn’t see much some chicken breast, peppers, and well that’s about it. It is definitely time to go shopping but I just didn’t want to last night so I had to come up with something. I had read a few weeks back about making homemade spice blends, so I decided this was the night to try and it made some homemade chicken fajitas. Simple and quick and you can make enough of the spice blend to save for later. It would work great with steak or shrimp as well.
