Fajitas seasoning ingredients
To make your own fajitas seasoning recipe you need at least the following spices on your shopping list. I usually shop for spices in my Oriental Asian supermarket.
They have a lot of different brands and they are usually so much cheaper than what you buy in a regular supermarket. For this recipe you need the following spices:
- Chili powder mix
- Ground black pepper
- Smoked paprika
- Dried oregano
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Crushed red pepper flakes(optional)
How to make fajitas seasoning
As with the chili powder mix making your own fajitas seasoning recipe is super easy. Measure all of the spices as mentioned in the ingredient list below.
Because I was out of onion powder and cumin powder, I used my pestle and mortar to turn dried onion flakes into onion powder and cumin seed into cumin powder.
Now put all of the spices in a bowl and stir through properly. Be careful with the crushed red pepper flakes if you do not like spicy hot spice blends.
It is better to add the red pepper flakes gradually and taste to see if it has to proper amount of heat instead add all the chili flakes in one go.
How to store your fajitas seasoning
You can store your fajitas seasoning in a glass jar and store it in a dark kitchen cabinet. You can keep it for months without this DIY fajitas seasoning losing its taste.
