If you are wondering what is in fajita seasoning and want to learn how you can make the best fajitas seasoning yourself? Lets get started!
I was not planning on doing a series on spices and seasoning. However after showing how easy you can make chili powder you love, it is a simple step to share my favorite homemade fajitas seasoning.
With anything you can adjust this fajitas seasoning mix to your own taste. Want more spice? Add some Cayenne or hot Chili powder. Like garlic? Add more garlic powder to this mix. Just experiment to get your ideal combo and then make it in bulk so you always have enough available.
What do you need for your very own fajitas seasoning
To make your own fajitas spice mix 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 when you buy them in a regular supermarket. 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 mix is super easy. Measure all of the spices as mentioned in the ingredient list below.
As I was out of onion powder and cumin powder I used my pestle and mortar to turn dried onion into onion powder and cumin seed into cumin powder.
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.
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 the spice mix losing its taste.
