If you love fajita night like I do, you will love whipping up your very own Homemade Fajita Seasoning blend and slathering it on your meat of choice. Whether steak or chicken, this blend is perfection!

And the best part is: it only requires a handful of ingredients you probably already have in your pantry! Skip the typical seasoning packet and make your own from scratch!

Now all you need is a stack of fresh tortillas and your favorite toppings. I love to grill my meat up with a handful of bell peppers. My favorite toppings to dice up are avocados, tomatoes, fresh cilantro, and of course some shredded cheese and salsa.

This seasoning is not just for fajitas. It’s a delish spice to use on any meat for a tasty Mexican flavor!!

Tips + Variations

Not Just for Fajitas: This seasoning is great to flavor many other dishes. 

  • You can use it as a dry rub for beef, pork and poultry 
  • Use it to season things roasted veggies or corn on the cob.
  • Sprinkle it over  baked potatoes or sweet potatoes.
  • Mix it in with refried beans, balck beans and rice.
  • Season your scrambled eggs.

I really love how this recipe turned out, but you can increase or decrease any of the ingredients. I’ve seen some signature recipes include anything from chipotle powder to a dash of cocoa powder.  Unleash your inner creativity.
