If you are a fajita maker, then a homemade fajita seasoning recipe is what you need! It's really quick and easy to put together and will add far more flavours than those little packs of mysterious spices you usually buy from the store.
Note: For the best flavour when making your seasoning recipes, I advise using whole ingredients where you can, sometimes this is not practical. In these cases just use pre-ground powders and reduce the quantities by about half. So if it says 2 tablespoons of cumin seeds you would use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground cumin. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.
What You'll Need: (makes about 9-10 tablespoons)
4 tbsp paprika powder
2 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp mustard seeds
2 tbsp oregano
2 tbsp white peppercorns (or black)
1 tbsp thyme
2-3 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp sea salt
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store your fajita seasoning in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.
Note: If you have the time, and for even more flavours and fab aromas, dry toasting the cumin, peppercorns and mustard seeds before grinding is recommended.
