Of course it's really simple to pick up a packet of fajita mix full of mysterious spices from the store, but the homemade fajita seasoning below is so quick and easy I recommend you give it a go. It will add fab flavours to your recipes and you know exactly what's in there! (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)
Note: If you don't have all the whole spices for this fajita seasoning mix just use pre-ground powders and reduce the amounts by half. For example, 2 tablespoons of cumin seeds equals about 1 tablespoon of pre-ground cumin. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well.
What You'll Need: (makes about 7-8 tablespoons)
3 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black peppercorns
1 beef stock/bouillon cube (optional)
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight and use within 3 months.
Note: For even more flavour, you can toast the cumin and peppercorns before grinding.
