I started making my own fajita seasoning because I started to realize how much I was using every week and I really don’t like the store-bought kind.

They’re full of junk and never nearly enough flavor as I would like.

So, I took matters into my own hands.

I made a big batch of this so now I have a jar of it to use!

Why make your own fajita seasoning?

Well first, it’s easy.

Second, it is much better than the store-bought kind because you know all the ingredients going into it and there is no filler.

Third, you can tweak it to your own tastes.

What is the difference between fajita seasoning and taco seasoning?

They’re very similar but taco seasoning has a higher chili powder content and additional added ingredients.

Fajita seasoning is slightly milder (in general) than taco seasoning.

Is fajita seasoning and taco seasoning interchangeable?

Technically, yes, but if you are looking for something more mild, you should use fajita seasoning.

You don't have to buy fajita seasoning packets when you can make your own at home! They're much healthier too because you know exactly what's going into it and you can customize to your own taste!

How can I tweak this to what I like?

If you like it spicier, add more cayenne.

If you like it more mild, reduce the cayenne.

If you like one spice over another, add more of it.

What can you use this fajita seasoning on?

Everything!

Chicken, shrimp, steak, what have you!

When you do add the fajita seasoning to whatever you are cooking?

I like putting it on before putting it in the skillet.

The meat is still raw so it will help the seasoning stick to it when you sear it in the pan.
