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.

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.

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 medeiratian 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.

CS

How much of the seasoning do you use per pound of meat to make your fajitas?

    Hi CS, that is a great question and I’ll add it to the post. You can use 1-2 tablespoons per pound of meat. The range depends on how much flavor you want them to have.

I need this ASAP. I haven’t had fajitas in so long and I much prefer a homemade seasoning.

Valentina

This is definitely something I’m going to have to have at the ready in my pantry. Great recipe!

Charla @ That Girl Cooks Healthy

Love this! I would say 80% of my spice rack consists of homemade seasoning and this one sounds like a keeper.

Lisa Huff

Great way to mix-up our family Taco Tuesday! Love the idea of making a homemade mix instead of buying!

Silvia

I’ve never tried making homemade fajita seasoning. I really have to try fajitas.

Trang

Homemade seasonings are the best! Especially since I probably have most of the ingredients anyways, and I love to know exactly what I’m putting on my food 🙂

Kasey

This looks so easy and delicious! I can’t wait to try it!
