Fajita Seasoning

Fajita seasoning – a hodgepodge of flavor that creates this amazing smokey flavor filled with heat.

I love fajitas. Bryan loves them too. Every time we go to a Mexican restaurant, he orders fajitas. And they are expensive compared to the other plates.

I think what gets to me the most is, why are you going to give me that much meat and only 2 or 3 piddle-y tortillas to go with it. No matter how much I pack into that tortilla, I’ll still have a bunch of meat leftover. And then when you ask for more tortillas, they charge you per tortilla!


Might as well make it at home where I can buy 20 tortillas for like $1.15.

Which is what I decided to do. But in order to make fajitas correctly, you have to get the right seasoning or else, it’s just grilled meat.

Fajita Seasoning

1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Makes 2 1/2 tablespoons.

All you need is a grill, a green bell pepper, an onion, and some meat to rub that yummy awesome seasoning on and you’re good to go. Never go to a Mexican restaurant again and have to deal with the Tejano music for fajitas.
