There is just something exciting about a sizzling platter of fajitas coming towards your table. The smell of all of those beautiful spices hits you just as much as the steam coming off the skillet. Hopefully that platter of fajitas is for you and not passing you by for another table. That’s semi tortuous. Good news, you can make your own seasoning mix and make fajitas at home any time you please.

What is Fajita Seasoning ?
Fajita seasoning is a dry seasoning mix used to make fajitas. It’s made up a selection of multiple spices. Our mix contains a mixture of 9 herbs and spices.
Fajita and Taco seasonings are slightly different. Fajita seasoning is typically milder than a taco seasoning.
Can Fajita Seasoning Mix Be Customized ?
The beauty about making your own seasoning mix is that YOU can control what goes in. Want it a little spicier? Add more cayenne. Not into smoked paprika? No worries, use regular paprika. Too salty for your taste? Pull back on the salt.
