How to Make Your Own Fajita Seasoning
I always make my own fajita seasoning. Not because I’m one of those purists who insist on making everything from scratch—I am definitely not that person. I make it because it’s simple and economical. If I have all the individual spices that go into the mix anyway, it seems like a waste of money to buy a little packet that literally contains those same things.
Fajita seasoning is versatile, too, so it’s something I keep on hand in the pantry. I use fajita-seasoned vegetables for:
- Tex-Mex pizzas
- Topping baked potatoes
- Tostadas (Sign up for Green Plate Club meal plans and you’ll see that recipe coming up soon!)
The seasoning can be stirred into crema or sour cream for a little zing or sprinkled on corn-on-the-cob too. It’s good stuff!Print
