Spices for fajitas

Fajitas taste amazing with warm spices that have a bit of a kick. You’re going to fall in love with this seasoning mixture that’s full of smokey and spices flavors such as chili powder, cumin, paprika and more.

Learn how to make homemade fajita seasoning mix yourself! You can make it in about 5 minutes, it lasts in a mason jar for months, and it only takes 8 pantry staples. And you’ll know exactly what you’re feeding your family.

Seasoning mixes can seem harmless, but there are so many hidden ingredients that could be harming your health. They are full of fillers, so they cost more with less flavor. They sell you a mix with corn starch in it to make it look like more.

But even worse, most seasonings have MSG and other harmful ingredients that make them sit on the shelf longer without clumping. I don’t mind breaking up some chunks to avoid illness in the future.

So let this mix elevate your fajitas to the next level with deliciousness in every bite. You can also sprinkle it on other dishes to give them a little kick!

Just dump the ingredients into a bowl, stir it up, and you’re ready to go. And you’ll have more to use in dishes later.
