This recipe is out friggin' standing!<br/>I was using Taco Bell brand packaged fajita mix prior to finding this recipe. I never thought anything could be as good as the T.B. packages. When the packages became hard to come by, I thought I'd experiment with some homemade mixes.<br/>When I saw that this recipe had over 110 positive reviews, I thought I'd give it a shot.<br/>Aaaah maaazing...<br/>It's actually BETTER than the. seasoning that I've been using for years. Made the recipe exactly as described, and used about one Tablespoon per pound of cooked chicken meat. I'll probably experiment with adding a bit more 'heat' ala cayenne and crushed red pepper, (because I have a preference for hot food) but this recipe is fantastic right out of the box.
I saw the comments about this not tasting like Lawry's... I think I found the "trick", add lime juice and worchestershire sauce to meat. My husband is also a die hard Lawry's fan!!! I've tried other fajita recipes in the past and he disliked every one... until now. He said these were the best ever! The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is I felt the recipe did need the extra "kick" of lime & worchestershire.
Very pleased! Look no further, however-I think Iam going to omit the bouillion-a bjt too strong chicken base flavor comes thru and detracts from the fajita. Simply add to pre cooked Shredded chicken and heat thru -OR- slice 2 large chicken breast into thin strips, add seasoning and toss onto hot griddle, grill up some sliced onions and bell peppers and, *voila.
