Hi Hey! Happy Sunday! I don’t want to turn your entire attention away from those awesome Steak Fajitas, buuuuut… I have one thing to say: (⬅ said in RuPaul-style)

STOP buying taco, fajita, and whatever else seasoning-packets!!! Pleeeease! Ok Ok. I’ll stop shouting. And what you buy is none of my business, I know. But still. Just read some of the ingredients – it’s like chemicaly and stuff. You don’t need that.  It’s so much better when you can make your own, especially when it is this easy.

Steak Fajitas | www.diethood.com | Perfectly seasoned, classic steak fajitas with onions and peppers, wrapped in warm flour tortillas.

I use this Homemade Fajitas Seasoning Mix on Fajitas, on Tacos, on Chicken Salads, and on anything else that can somehow be turned into a Tex Mex deal.

Just letting you know now. This ain’t about no fancy pancy ingredients.

FAJITAS SEASONING MIX

This is about some chili powder, a bit of cumin, paprika, salt and pepper, dash or two of garlic powder, and a good dose of oregano. All dried up and ready to be mixed into a jar.

  1. Thanks for the recipe! I used Mexican oregano instead of plain oregano. Mexican oregano has a different flavor profile that makes Tex-Mex dishes taste amazing! I sauteed 2 lbs of chicken, peppers and onions in 2 Tbsp of olive oil. Then I added 1 Tbsp of cornstarch and a 1/4 cup of water to your spice mixture and poured it over everything and let it simmer for about 8 minutes. It was delicious! Next time, I’m going to use flank steak and let it sit in the marinade for a couple of hours and throw everything on the grill. Can’t wait!

    Perfect spice blend, I marinated the meat for an hour in the spices and made the best fajitas ever!
    Thanks for the recipe x

    Came up as the first google search, I had all the spices and it took the length of time I would have spent looking for it at the supermarket. Easy and delicious!

    Best fajita seasoning I’ve tried so far! I used half the recipe (~1 tbsp) for 0.9 lbs of chicken. I only had Hungarian style sweet paprika but it wasn’t a problem.

    1. Hi!
      That was for the entire 2+ tablespoons of this seasoning. I just broke it down to servings and the sodium content is a bit lower, at around 394 mg. I updated the overall nutritional analysis, as well. I hope this helps. 🙂

  5. Valerie

    How would you use this as a marinade? How much oil or water? Also, the nutritional content says 2000 mg, I’m assuming this is if you use the whole thing?
