Homemade Fajita Spice Mix

I confess more often than not, I have one of those fast lazy fat boy packets of Fajita Seasoning in the drawer. Until I didn’t and then I had to make some and found that, “mine tasted better nah nah nah”! So there!








2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tsp Tajn seasoning
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp kosher salt to taste
¼ tsp cayenne pepper


  1. Combine ingredients in a small bowl making sure that any lumps are gone.
  2. Place the protein for your fajitas in a zip lock bag and add half of the seasonings in the bowl and marinate for at least 2 hours(over night is better).
  3. Cook your fajitas using the rest of the seasonings.
