This fajita seasoning mix isn’t a meal, but it’s incredibly important when it comes to making certain dishes. If you have found yourself with no seasoning in the cupboard, then this is the recipe you need.
Fajita seasoning is not as punchy as taco seasoning but is still an incredible seasoning that you should keep in your cupboard. Its ideal use is for fajitas, but there are plenty of other dishes where this seasoning comes in handy.
This seasoning mix has a delicious range of spices and herbs such as the chili powder, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and some ground cumin.
Typically a fajita is grilled meat that is served as a taco with either a flour or corn tortilla. The meat is often cooked in a mixture of spices and herbs like this recipe. It is part of Tex-Mex cuisine and is a popular dish throughout Mexico and the United States.
Make this Seasoning in Bulk
You can make this recipe in bulk if you find yourself using this seasoning quite a bit.
Make sure you store the seasoning in an airtight container in the cupboard. Keeping it in an airtight container will help ensure that the seasoning will not go stale.
If you’re storing it for a long time, then you may find that the seasoning will clump together. It is still fine to use, just use a spoon or something similar to break it up.

- This seasoning will last in the cupboard for ages if stored correctly. Make sure it’s in a sealed container, and you don’t get the mix wet. You will find it will last months if stored correctly.
