Pretty much all of the spices used in our fajita mix are used at some point in our other recipes such as our beef Rogan or our popular slow cooker pulled pork. So the little investment at the beginning can create so many more meals in the long run. I also only use the supermarket own brand spices rather than branded as I have never been able to tell the difference between the two, so why pay more?

These beef fajitas are great as they are but they are also extremely versitile. For example, if you have 3 peppers to use up as they are going past their best, just throw them in. It is the same for the meat too, if you don’t have beef you can replace this with other meats like chicken or turkey. It still tastes just as good I promise.
