    Anyone have some seasoning recipes for tacos, fajitas and the like?

    Mine is kind of like plain old packaged seasoning, looking to change it up a little.

    I have used this one... not too terrible. Modifications should be made probably, like chipotle powder needs to be in there for sure.

    Emeril's Southwest Seasoning:
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 tablespoons paprika
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    1 tablespoon ground coriander
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 tablespoon dried oregano

      I like this wet brine/marinade:

      1/4 cup fresh lime juice
      1/3 cup water
      2 Tbsp vegetable oil
      1 large garlic clove, pressed
      3 tsp vinegar
      2 tsp soy sauce
      1/2 tsp liquid smoke
      1 tsp salt
      1/2 tsp chili powder
      1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
      1/4 tsp ground black pepper
      Dash onion powder
      2 large boneless chicken breasts (or 4 small)

      In a medium sized bowl, whisk together all of the above ingredients. Place your chicken in a large Ziploc bag and pour marinade over the top. Using your hands, rub the outside of the bag, ensuring all of the chicken is evenly coated. Place the bag in a flat shallow dish and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours.

        Use the seasoning in MH's chili recipe: one part cumin to three parts chili powder for a simple one. Add salt to taste.
