Chicken Fajita Spice Mix

Love fajitas for their versatility.
Love fajitas for their one-pan clean up.
Love fajitas for their non-carb-heavy satisfaction.
Love fajitas for their speed from fridge to mouth.
Love fajitas for their quick-in-the-pan and don't-heat-up-the-kitchen in summer.
Love fajitas period.

Fajitas have been my go-to meal after a long day for ages. It's been so long that I'm thinking of (finally) changing it up a bit. Before that happens, I'd just like to share the homemade spice mix, which saves a few pennies and ensures that you can always make fajitas on a whim, rather than crossing your fingers that whatever little grocery shop on the way home will have a packet in stock.
