Fajita means “little strips of meat”, a Tex-Mex, or Tejano, term for one of our favorite South-of-the Border flavors. Fun Fact... the word Fajita did not appear in print until 1971.
We created our Savory Blends to be all-purpose seasonings you can sprinkle on just about anything. Use them as you would use salt and pepper to give any dish a uniquely delicious flare. Here are some of our favorite uses:
- As a traditional taco seasoning: brown ground meat in a 10 inch skillet. Stir in 2/3 cup of water and 1 oz of Tejano. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 3-4 minutes. Stir often.
- Mexican Rice: Add 1 tbsp to 1 cup uncooked rice. In a rice cooker, combine with 2 cups chicken broth. Sauté bell peppers, onion and cilantro in a skillet with olive oil and tsp of Tejano. Set aside. Mix rice and veggies together when rice is done. If you don't have a rice cooker, cook rice on stovetop with Tejano and chicken broth.
- Sprinkle on vegetables
- Kick up nuts & popcorn
