Our fajita seasoning, “Southwestern Sizzler “, is perfect for pork, chicken, beef and shrimp fajitas. It also seasons taco meat, Spanish rice, pico de gallo and refried beans. If you make chili or have a recipe that requires chili powder, “Southwestern Sizzler ” will take its place as well because it has a fine blend of southwest chilies including ancho, pasilla and New Mexico red with plenty of comino and garlic.
Below are some pics and recipes:
Southwestern Sizzler Taco Meat: Start with browning 2lbs. of taco meat and drain grease. Add 3/4 cup chopped white onion and 3-4 large cloves of fresh chopped garlic and sauté. Add 3 tbs. of “Southwestern Sizzler ” and 1/2 cup water. Simmer 10 min covered on medium heat or until water cooks down.
Southwestern Sizzler Spanish Rice: Start by browning one cup of long grain rice (not instant)in 1/4 cup of oil and add salt to taste. Add 2-3 cloves of fresh chopped garlic and 1/2 cup minced white onion and sauté. Add a can of chopped tomato with green chilies, 1 1/2 cups of water and 2 tbs of “Southwestern Sizzler “. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes or until rice becomes moist and excess water is cooked down. NOTE: Parboiled, peeled and chopped fresh tomatoes with fresh chopped jalapeño can replace the canned mixture. You will need to increase the water by 1/4 cup.
Quick Southwestern Sizzler Refried Beans: Sauté 1 chopped clove of garlic and 2 tbs chopped onion in a tbs of oil until soft. Add a can of jalapeno pinto beans and heat on high. Reduce heat, add a sprinkle of “Southwestern Sizzler ” and soft mash with a potato masher.
See my homemade “Southwestern Sizzler ” beans ala charra recipe that will make excellent refried beans. This was used on tostadas and does a great job for that purpose.
Fresh fried corn tortillas with all the trimmings. The cheese tostada just has shredded co-jack cheese until the next picture!
Adding the final touch! Top beef & bean tostada along with the cheese one has red pequin reserve. The bottom one has los tres chilies!! Man these were outstanding and the heat was on for sure after this plate disappeared.
