Never buy a store-bought seasoning packet again! This homemade Fajita Seasoning Mix is so easy to make and absolutely delicious, much better than the store-bought kind! As an added bonus, it’s sugar free, so it’s Keto, Low Carb, Whole30 and Paleo.
Homemade Spice Blends
Making your own seasoning blends is more cost effective than buying store bought blends, and it also ensures you have full control over every ingredient included, which is important when you’re closely monitoring the foods you eat.
Many store-bought brands have sneaky artificial ingredients and unnecessary sweeteners. But this recipe is 100% Whole30 compliant and Keto friendly!
On any given day, I already have all the spices in my cabinet needed to make fajita seasoning. Because all that’s it in is cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika.
The cayenne pepper is the secret to the spicy kick. If you like your fajitas a little milder, use less or leave it out completely. It’s totally customizable!
How to Use Fajita Seasoning
Fajita seasoning is wonderful on chicken, shrimp, beef, and more! Shown above is a chicken fajita salad!
As a general rule of thumb, use between 2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon of fajita seasoning for every pound of protein you cook.
Fajita Seasoning vs. Taco Seasoning
A lot of people wonder if there’s a different between fajita seasoning and taco seasoning. Traditionally, some spices are the same and some are different, but to most home cooks, you’d never know the difference.
In my opinion, the difference is small so you can use the two blends interchangeably anytime you’re in a pinch.
