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 chemical-ly 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.


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.

  2. Jodi says:

    Would you recommend the sea salt be coarse or fine grained? I prefer things are not too salty, so thought I’d go with coarse, but would appreciate any feedback. Thank you!

    1. Katerina says:

      I use coarse sea salt.

    Thank you over the last year or 2 I have used this recipe tonnes of times it’s really nice and the fact that I am mixing it up myself means I can put less chilli powder in so my daughter who doesn’t like things spicy hot can eat it too. I use about half of the chili powder. I shared it with my mum my brother and a FB group of friends just sharing the link to your page and many of us are now making it. I usually multiply it by about 6 and mix up a fair bit at once so I have it to hand. It saves time and works better when I’m tired and brains gone to bed. I use thinly sliced chicken breast, peppers, onions and recently started adding tomatoes which are so nice in it. I put it all in a big oven dish drizzle with about 2 tbsp of oil for 4 of us and mix that then add 2 tbsp of this spice blend and mix before putting in the oven for 35 – 40 mins stirring half way through. I don’t even have to stand and cook it then once the prep is done.

    Where is the recipe on how to cook it, at what temperature etc

    1. Katerina Petrovska says:

      How to cook a seasoning mix? There’s no cooking involved; you just combine all the seasonings/spices together and store it in a bag or jar until you’re ready to use it.

    I, too, make all my own seasoning blends and sauces, and I’m always on the prowl to up the seasoning game. I have a question about the chili powder ingredient. When I make chili, I make my own chili powder with paprika, cayenne, cumin, garlic, onion, oregano, cloves… Do you mean the chili powder blend from the supermarket? Thanks!

    1. Katerina Petrovska says:

      Yes, I use the chili powder blend sold at the supermarket or on Amazon 😊 https://amzn.to/3kvqK9j
