Homemade Fajita Seasoning is such an easy recipe. Making your own at home will save money, but also allow you to control the ingredients, making as much or as little as you like.
Homemade Fajita Seasoning is easy to make with spices you already have in your pantry. Control the salt, sugar and heat by making your own for the best fajitas around!
Did you know that most packaged seasonings contine salt and sugar. It is one of the things people doing the Whole 3o, keto and paleo diets find to be the most surprising: hidden sugars.
Making homemade seasonings means you can make a sugar free fajita seasoning or salt free fajita seasoning.
You can also control the heat in your homemade fajita seasoning. Do you want sweat beads on your nose? Crank it up and double, even triple the chile powder. Even add a dash of cayenne pepper.
Need to keep it milk for the kiddos? Cut the chile powder in half. You can also use different types of chile powder. An ancho chile powder will be nice and smoky whereas an aleppo pepper will give you a mediterranean flare.
Make as much or as little as you like and store for months in an airtight plastic container. This seasoning can also be used as a homemade taco seasoning or for grilled meat, seafood and vegetable.
Fajitas are not historically any ethnic type of food other than Tex-Mex, a blend of Mexican and American foods. They started being served with flank steak, but are now expanded to chicken, shrimp and of course, just vegetarian.
