Fajita Seasoning Mix

"Rather than buying fajita seasoning, it's easy to make your own. Approximately 2 tablespoons equals 1 store-bought seasoning packet."

  1. how much would you add to 1 lb. chicken strips ? 1 tblsp ? 2 tblsp ? more ?
  2. Did in one know how to make Fajita from a Recipes and can someone tell me how to do it
  3. If making steak fajitas should I omit the chicken bouillon?


  1. This recipe is out friggin' standing!<br/>I was using Taco Bell brand packaged fajita mix prior to finding this recipe. I never thought anything could be as good as the T.B. packages. When the packages became hard to come by, I thought I'd experiment with some homemade mixes.<br/>When I saw that this recipe had over 110 positive reviews, I thought I'd give it a shot.<br/>Aaaah maaazing...<br/>It's actually BETTER than the. seasoning that I've been using for years. Made the recipe exactly as described, and used about one Tablespoon per pound of cooked chicken meat. I'll probably experiment with adding a bit more 'heat' ala cayenne and crushed red pepper, (because I have a preference for hot food) but this recipe is fantastic right out of the box.
  2. We really enjoyed the chicken fajitas I made for supper using your wonderful Fajita Seasoning Mix. It's so quick to mix and tastes a million times better than commercial seasonings! Believe I've bought my last packaged! Thanks a bunch for posting. Laudee C.
  3. Not bad but too much salt if you ask me. I cut the salt in half, omitted the bullion, doubled the cumin, and quadrupled the garlic powder. Ended up with just as much flavor with less sodium.
  4. I love to make my own mixes and this one is a winner!!! Way less expensive when you figure out the cost of making vs. buying. Great flavor!!!!
  5. I saw the comments about this not tasting like Lawry's... I think I found the "trick", add lime juice and worchestershire sauce to meat. My husband is also a die hard Lawry's fan!!! I've tried other fajita recipes in the past and he disliked every one... until now. He said these were the best ever! The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is I felt the recipe did need the extra "kick" of lime & worchestershire.


  1. Used a smoke paprika
  2. ran out of my store bought mix, found this and it was fantastic. added some lime juice to the chicken and substituted red pepper flakes (small amount so it wouldn't bother the kids) for the cayenne pepper. Huge hit!
  3. Very pleased! Look no further, however-I think Iam going to omit the bouillion-a bjt too strong chicken base flavor comes thru and detracts from the fajita. Simply add to pre cooked Shredded chicken and heat thru -OR- slice 2 large chicken breast into thin strips, add seasoning and toss onto hot griddle, grill up some sliced onions and bell peppers and, *voila.
  4. Shouldn't the fajita mix cheetahhave some kind of a liquid
  5. I doubled the amount of cumin to give it more "fahita" seasoning. Awesome!
