When to use Homemade Fajita Seasoning

This spice mix is designed to replace the store-bought spice you would normally use for your fajitas: mix it in with your vegetables or meat as they cook in your skillet or pan.

  1. Could you tell me whether this is for one batch or several?

    • Hi Daryle. As the ingredients stand, that’s for one batch – it will be enough for roughly 8 tortillas/fajitas etc. You can use the slider in the recipe to change servings, then you can make a bigger batch to save time and effort. Hope that helps!
