Goodbye store-bought and hello, Homemade Fajita Seasoning! Save your money and use those jars of spices to whip up the best fajita seasoning!
Once upon a time, Pat and I would make chicken fajitas by opening a bag of store-bought, frozen and previously “grilled” fajita chicken. True story! We’d thaw them in a skillet and fill our soft taco shells with the chicken, shredded lettuce and cheese.
That’s it. Obviously that was way before this little blog of mine took over our lives and we discovered we like lots of different toppings.
These days, I make my own fajita seasoning. Instead of frozen, we grill fresh chicken and we top it with caramelized bell peppers and onions, thinly sliced romaine lettuce, pickled jalapeños, diced red onions, pepper jack cheese and hot sauce. Allthehotsauce.
As you can see, we’ve come a long way and I’m happy to share with you the recipe for the easiest homemade fajita taco seasoning ever.
To Make This Homemade Fajita Seasoning blend You will Need:
- chili powder
- kosher salt
- onion powder
- ground cumin
- garlic powder
- cayenne pepper
In a small bowl, or my personal fave a glass jar, add 2 tablespoon chili powder, 1 tablespoon kosher salt, 1 tablespoon paprika, 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar, 1-1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1-1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 3/4 teaspoons garlic powder and 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper.
Mix it well until thoroughly combined and you’re good to go. Seriously it’s crazy good and just as easy!
