Making fajitas and don’t have seasoning? Make this homemade fajita seasoning to season chicken, beef or pork.
Homemade Fajita Seasoning Recipe
Homemade seasoning mixes. You just can’t beat them. I don’t know how many times I’ve opened the cupboard to make tacos or sausage and not had a seasoning mix. I now try to take some time to mix up bulk seasoning mixes, such as this fajita seasoning. It stores easily in your cupboard for 4-6 months. We never have trouble using this up in that amount of time!
How to Make Fajita Seasoning
Fajita seasoning could not be easier. Mix all of the ingredients together and store it in an airtight container. Simple as that.
- We used tapioca starch, but if you don’t have that, you can use the same amount of cornstarch.
- I like to use coconut sugar. Use granulated sugar if you’d like. Or leave the sugar out all together. It does add to the flavor, but is good without it also.
- Add a little more pepper if you’d like it spicier. The amounts shown below are what our family of 5 loves.
How Much Fajita Seasoning to Use
I usually fix about 1 1/2-2 pounds of meat when I make fajitas. We like about 3 tablespoons of mix to season almost 2 pounds of meat. Adjust the exact amount to your liking.
