Fajita Seasoning

fajita seasoning

Fajita seasoning homemade mix! This recipe is super tasty and so easy to make…then use for fajitas, tacos, guacamole, salsas, etc. This is my favorite blend, but of course you can add more cayenne for more heat. Less salt to lower the sodium and so on. It’s customizable, but makes seasoning in the moment so much easier. To make larger batches use the ingredients and portions below, just multiply!

My favorite thing to do with the fajita seasoning mix is coat fish or chicken and cook in a pan. Top with some tasty mango pineapple salsa!

I made a series of recipes for a cooking class at my full-time event planning/directing job. We made recipe cards and stations of about 3-4 people for each station. It was maybe one of the most entertaining classes I’ve ever coordinated…too many people not following instructions, adding too much spice, and generally being very dangerous and wild. But that’s what you get with a group of staffers at a University. It was our “spring break” fun activities for having to work during the holiday and also a little break from the students. Honestly, one of the most difficult weeks for the Director of Executive Events who has to plan the Staff Week. But it was a great experience and I’m so grateful for my time and experiences there.
