Homemade fajita seasoning is a spice mix that can be used on chicken, fish, vegetables and many other things. It tastes great on chili too. Most store bought mixes contain additives that you may not want to eat. Making your own allows you to control the ingredients. Just like homemade soups and bread, it is always very satisfying to know what is in the food you eat.
I have been using this basic recipe for years and I make it in large batches so I can have it on hand whenever I need it. Making your own seasoning mix is very easy but there are a few tricks that will help you end up with better flavor than you would expect from a homemade spice mix.
Fajitas are my absolute favorite meal to make. I love the combination of flavors, the way they change depending on what you put in them and how you make them. There are a million fajita recipes out there, most of them calling for a package of seasoning mix. But when I saw this recipe for homemade fajita seasoning mix, I had to try it. It’s so easy and so much better!
I’ve always loved fajitas, but the fajita mix that you buy mixes with water to make a paste, and then cooks in a pan with your meat and veggies. It’s delicious, but I’ve always wondered why you couldn’t just use the spices by themselves without the oil? Then I tried it, and now I have homemade fajita seasoning mix that tastes much better than the packaged kind! The packaged kind comes with salt already added in; if you don’t use all of it at once, the rest will get hard. This homemade version is perfectly fresh every time.
Homemade Fajita Seasoning Mix

1/4 c ground cumin
2 Tbsp paprika

We love fajitas and it’s one of our go-to meals when we need something fast, easy and delicious. But a few months ago we started making our own homemade fajita seasoning and we’ve never looked back.
It was all because I couldn’t find my usual fajita seasoning at the grocery store. So I went to the spice aisle and tried a few different brands until I found one that was pretty good.
But then I tasted it.
And then I sent a panicked text message to my husband: “This is not right! It has sugar in it!”
Do you want to make your own fajita seasoning? It is easy, quick and cheap. Just follow the steps that I will give below.
1 tablespoon chili powder.
1 teaspoon cumin.
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder.
1/2 teaspoon onion powder.
1/4 teaspoon oregano.
1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste).
Put all ingredients in a bowl, get a spoon to mix it up well. Store it in a zip lock bag or container, keep it in a cool place, use it when needed. That’s it!
Fajitas are a Mexican dish that consist of grilled meat and vegetables, served in a soft flour tortilla. While traditional fajitas are made with skirt steak, chicken, and shrimp, the fajita seasoning can be used in a variety of recipes.
Tortillas are usually warmed before they are filled with the fajita ingredients. However, if you spoon the fajita filling over the burgers or meat patties right before serving them, you can save time by not having to warm the tortillas first. This is especially helpful during the summer months when you don’t want to heat up your kitchen too much by turning on the oven. You also can make them ahead of time and keep them warm in an oven set at 200 degrees until it is time to serve them.
Fajitas can be served as an appetizer or as a main dish.”
