This DIY Fajita Seasoning is incredibly simple, ready in no time and made from basic pantry ingredients that you can pronounce. Perfect for fajitas, tacos, soups and sauces!
First salsa, now fajita seasoning. Can you guess what the next recipe will be? Chicken fajitas! But you’ll have to wait for those because right now you’re getting the world’s shortest recipe, or at least the shortest recipe on my blog.
A while ago when I shared my Jamaican Jerk seasoning with you, I asked if you wanted to see more spice blends from me, because many times you will comment on recipes or email me and ask me how to make or where to find certain spice blends. Your responses were positive, so here I am with another spice blend which I think should be a staple in your pantry.
This is a really simple spice blend to make with ingredients you’re likely to have in your spice cabinet or pantry. The quantities are smaller because I just made enough to use for the upcoming chicken fajitas but feel free to make as much as you can. Did you know that if you hover over the servings size, a slider will pop up and you can increase the number of servings you want and that will change the quantity of the ingredients to what’s required? Pretty cool feature.
The great thing about making your homemade spice blends is that you can control what goes into them. While I used coarse salt in this recipe, you could actually substitute it with a low-sodium table salt and that would drastically reduce the sodium content. The main ingredient in this spice blend is chili powder. I used a mild chili powder but because I’m using a whole tablespoon of it, I found it just right for me. However, feel free to reduce or increase the chili powder to achieve your desired spiciness.
This fajita seasoning is perfect for all kinds of dishes, not only fajitas, but tacos, burritos, soups and sauces.
