Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.  
  • Use immediately or store in a small container. 

Notes

  • This recipe is gluten free and dairy free! (Just check the labels of your spices to make sure there are no weird additives)
  • store my fajita seasoning in cute little spice jars like these. You can also store it in zip baggies or any container with a lid (like an empty jelly jar!)
  • Please note that the cornstarch is optional. I rarely use it. But they do usually have some type of thickener in a store bought packet.
  • Homemade fajita seasoning fits keto and low carb lifestyles if you omit the cornstarch.
  • Don't forget to give your fajitas a fresh squeeze of lime juice when they're finished cooking. It will take them from "good" to "blow-your-mind amazing!"
  • To use this Homemade Fajita Seasoning with the protein (or veggies) of your choice: Use about 1 tablespoon of seasoning per pound of meat. If you did not use cornstarch, use 2 teaspoons of seasoning per pound of meat.
