Everyone knows how delicious Mexican food is, and I love cooking it every now and then. I love the delicious spicy aroma that fills the kitchen at dinner time, there is nothing smells better than onions and garlic cooking together.

Years ago, when I started experimenting with Mexican food, I bought a burrito-taco spice mix package from the store, I have to tell you the taste was awful, nothing but salt, and if you are an ingredients reader like me you won’t like what you see.

It is so easy to make your own spice mixture for burrito or fajita at home, making sure your family having a meal that it is clean from all the preservative in a store bought mixed spices.

.1/2 large onion or 1 medium thinly sliced

.1/2 tbsp. garlic granulate

.1 cup mixed frozen bell sliced pepper, thawed and drained

.4 tbsp. vegetable oil

.1 tsp. salt

.1 tsp. ground Achiote spice

.1 tsp. black pepper

.1 tsp paprika

.1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper

.1 tsp. cumin

.1 tsp. paprika

.6 cups cooked shredded chicken breast

.2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

.2 tbsp. chopped green onions

In a large sauté pan on medium heat, add vegetable oil and onion, add salt and sauté for few minutes until its soft and golden.

Add mixed bell pepper and cook until the liquid is evaporated, add all the spices, garlic granulate and cook for a minute.

Add cooked shredded chicken and cook for about 2-3 minutes stirring constantly.

Turn off the heat and serve family style with warm corn or flour tortilla, green rice, jalapeño salsa and vegetarian refried beans. Enjoy!

  1. I don’t like to use spice mixes because of the salt and other things when I don’t even know what they are. I am excited to have this recipe. but I have no idea what Achiote spice is. Is it available in grocery stores?
