  • Combine all the ingredients on a plate or in a bowl. Use it in a dish, or add it to an airtight container for storage.
  • The amount suggested will be enough for 10-12 servings of fajitas, but you can easily multiply the recipe if you want to make a bigger batch.


  • Fajita seasoning stores really well for up to several months in an airtight container. You can make a big batch and use it for several meals down the line.
  • Make sure to use fresh ingredients to make the spices last as long as possible.
  • You can add literally any spice or herb you want. Feel free to experiment, or replace any ingredients as you please. Common fajita spices include cayenne pepper, coriander, cumin, salt, paprika powder and black pepper.
  • Like a spicy fajita? Add more chili powder or some cayenne pepper to taste!
  • Fajita seasoning can be used in a variety of dishes, not just fajitas. Add it to any casserole, or use it as a dry rub to season beef or chicken.
Chili powder: Some spices sold as "chili powder" can contain cumin, so make sure to read the nutrition label before you buy it. I find that powders made from specific chilies, like chipotle powder, cayenne pepper, or crushed jalapenos are more likely to be free of cumin. These all vary in flavor and spice, so adjust the amount used to taste.
