Homemade Fajita Seasoning

Where are my fajita lovers at?? I’ll be honest, whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant the first thing I look for is fajitas! They’re just so good and spicy and I can’t seem to get enough of them. So of course I want to make them at home too! But like a lot of other store bought seasonings/spice blends, there’s usually A TON of “questionable ingredients” in them…and I’m just not about putting random chemicals in my body. So here’s my favorite homemade fajita seasoning that is 100% all natural, chemical free and can be used on just about everything!

My favorite ways to use this seasoning:

  • Chicken- pretty self explanatory but oh so delicious!
  • Ground turkey- this makes an awesome filling for tacos!
  • Shrimp- great for tacos and also amazing by themselves
  • Cauliflower- not feeling any meat in your tacos? Try fajita cauliflower instead
  • Eggs- believe it or not, it’s a great way to add a little spice to your breakfast!
  • Potatoes- also another great way to spice up your side dishes
  • Peppers & Onions- these are great in tacos or on a salad
  • Dressings- I’ve combined this with ranch or blue cheese to make a dressing for taco salad and it was delicious

Let me know if you have any other ideas too!
