Fajita Seasoning Mix Recipe - Add Fab
Flavours to Your Homemade Tex-Mex

If you regularly make fajitas, then a homemade fajita seasoning mix recipe is something you're sure to enjoy. The fabulous flavours and mouthwatering aromas it will add to your food are far better than any blend you can buy! (See the bottom of the page for other recipes)

Note: I recommend using as many whole ingredients as possible which are then ground as this gives the best flavours. However, if you only have pre-ground powders available, use them and simply reduce the amounts by half. For example 2 tablespoons of cumin seeds equal about 1 tablespoon ground cumin. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well.

Homemade Fajita Seasoning Mix Recipe

What You'll Need: (makes about 10 tablespoons)

4 tbsp chili powder (hot or mild)
3 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp dried parsley
4 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp black peppercorns

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the cumin, salt and peppercorns
  • Sieve into a bowl 
  • Stir in the paprika, chili, onion and garlic
  • Crumble in the parsley, thyme and oregano. Stir again

Store your fajita mix recipe in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Toasting and Grinding Tips

Note: If you have the time, dry toasting the cumin and peppercorns prior to grinding and combining with the pre-ground powders will add even more flavours and aromas to your finished blend and therefore your food.
