The Best Fajita Seasoning

One of my family’s favorite go-to meals is chicken fajitas. There are so many different ways to make them depending on our schedule, on the grill, in a skillet, in the oven, or in the crockpot, the possibilities are endless!

Do you know the one thing all the different ways to make fajitas have in common? A kick butt seasoning! 

Today I am sharing with you my fajita seasoning that I always use. Many fajita seasonings I have found have a lot of unnecessary added ingredients like cornstarch. I have played with this seasoning to get it as yummy as possible with as few spices as possible, you are welcome!

Plus, this seasoning is also easy to double (or triple) and keep in an airtight jar for an even easier meal in the future! So take 5 minutes now to whip up this seasoning together and you will thank me later!

  • Chili Powder
  • Paprika
  • Onion Powder
  • Cumin
  • Garlic Powder
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Salt
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
