Create a super fun family dinner with the Fajita Mix and Southwest Taco Mix from Simply Organic and the Whole Wheat Organic Tortillas from Mission Foods.

Just the right amount of spices, including chili pepper, garlic, cumin and coriander, to make your fajitas come alive. Season to taste, you may not need the full packet per recipe.

Simply Organic Southwest Taco Mix provides a mildly hot seasoning to enhance Mexican and Tex-Mex fare alike. Organic chili pepper from New Mexico, the "Chili Capital of the World", along with paprika, garlic, onion and cumin create that authentic taco flavor and bring some southwest sizzle to the table.
