Miracle Monday- Just add water Fajitas

This is a cheap trick that my dear mother taught me. When choosing between name brand and generic brand products at the grocery store, sometimes it matters which you choose while others it doesn’t. For example: when choosing what brand of chocolate chips to get, generic is not an option unless you like your cookies to taste like plastic. For soups, if you are just using it to put into a casserole or some other dish, generic is alright. But if you’re just wanting a bowl of soup, you may want to consider an upgrade to Campbell's. Now, when it comes to the little seasoning packets for things like salad dressing, enchiladas, tacos or fajitas, it is safe to say that Western Family does a really good job. One of my favorite dishes is made with Western Family Fajita Seasoning. Seriously, this meal is so very good, so very easy, and people think I can cook when I make it when really- I just added water. I highly recommend it.
