Tired of that store bought fajita mix? Take control of your own spices in this easy recipe for making home made fajita seasoning

I am not sure if you are like me but I really always wanted to be in the kitchen and out in no time. As a result, I resorted to using a lot of pre-made seasonings for my food. Seasonings that were either too salty, or not enough salt, or was clumped together when I opened the packet. I decided that I needed to make my own seasoning so that I can control the salt levels and avoid the processed additives.

Making fajita seasoning is beyond easy. You are able to make it from everyday spices you have in your pantry. I try my best to keep my pantry stock of spices. My pantry list always reminds me of what I should have in there to be able to cook easily.

I don't have a specific brand of spice that I stick to. I usually grab what I see (usually McCormick or Badia). I always visit the spice aisle to see what "new" spices or combination of spices I may find.

So let's dig in the pantry (or I may be the only person with layers and layers of condiments in there) and pull out our spices:

Measure out these common ingredients in a non-reactive bowl

And voila you are a fajita seasoning master

This mixture gives me approximately 3 - 4 tablespoons of seasoning.

You can easily, double, triple it and store in an airtight container (that has been fully dried) and added to your pantry for later use.

So easy, In fact, that was faster than going to the store, standing in line and paying for a premade pack of seasoning.
