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.
Of course, being a vegetarian website we don’t have any meat recipes here, but we won’t tell you how you should eat your fajita seasoning.
We will however try to convince you by logic and reasoning to try going veggie for 30 days (it really is easy!) to see how you feel.
So, if you’ve ever even just thought about trying to go vegetarian but don’t know where to start – come join us in the 30 Day Veggie Challenge!
Homemade Fajita Seasoning
- Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl.
- Use the spice mix whenever you would use a store-bought version - generally mix it in with your meat and/or vegetables in the skillet/pan. Add a couple tablespoons of water if necessary (if you see the seasoning clumping in the pan).
- Use what you need and store the rest in a screw-top jar. It’ll last at least 4 weeks.
