Don't buy MSG-loaded Adobo, Sauzon, or store-bought fajita seasoning. Combine with oil and use it to marinate corn, chickpeas, potatoes, and beans for a crispy healthy snack, and it's also great for tacos, fajitas, quesadillas, and I swear by this seasoning for my arroz con frijoles. It works for other Latin American foods too.


  1. Carefully mix, by hand, all the spices in a bowl until they are all perfectly melded, should be a light reddish-brown color.
  2. Yields 3.4 ounces, have an airtight bottle or container ready to store inches.
  3. Feel free to substitute the onion powder for garlic powder for a hotter taste, and cilantro for coriander, and adjust the cayenne according to how hot you would like it.

I have no choice but make my own seasonings and this is one I'll make a lot from now on. As suggested, I added some garlic powder and I sprinkled it on french fries. Can't wait to try it on chicken and popcorn as well. The addition of cornmeal was something interesting and new. Thanks for a keeper.
