Homemade Fajita Seasoning
Recipe type: Seasoning
Cuisine: Mexican
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 small jar
Now I know it's a phaf...and possibly not something you're prepared to knock up for mid-week quick tea. However if you make a quantity, and it really only takes a few minutes, in advance and leave it in your herbs/spices drawer it comes in very handy, not only for fajitas but as a marinade(add olive oil)/rub for fish and meats. As for whether it's better than shop bought fajita seasoning, I think so it really does taste more authentic and smoky with the added benefit you know exactly what's in it.
  • 1 tbs paprika
  • 21/2 tbs chilli powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (granules if you can't get powder)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chipotle pepper (chipotle rub as an alternative)
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  1. Put all seasoning in a jar and shake!
If you like this seasoning next time double, triple even quadruple the ingredient measures as seasonings last forever and a day.
