Great on chicken. Recipe from El Cholo Restaurant in Los Angeles.

Top Review by Chocolatl

Why do I like homemade fajitas and tacos so much better than their restaurant counterparts? The seasoning just might have something to do with it! I made 1/4 of the recipe, and substituted dried Ancho powder for the New Mexico chile powder. I also didn't add any additional salt, since the seasoned salt made it salty enough. This tasted a little harsh when raw, but mellowed out when added to the dish. I'm not buying any more commercial seasoning! Thanks for posting. Made for the Lively Lemon Lovelies, ZWT8.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine well and store in a tightly sealed container.
  2. I rub my cut-up raw chicken with this and then cook it with sliced tomatoes, onions and peppers (as much or little as you want). I season the vegetables with this same seasoning too. Some lime juice squeezed over the top and into the warmed flour tortillas it goes!
