Will be making up some fajitas next week, and this is the spice mix I use. It has some nice heat, and a bit of savory, and sweet. Never fails to please.

Just to let you know, this spice mix is designed for beef fajitas; not chicken or other proteins.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make DIY Essentials: Spicy Beef Fajita Spice Mix

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. If stored in a cool/dry location, in a glass container with a tight-fitting lid, this spice will last about six months.
  3. This recipe has salt, as most fajita spice recipes do; however, if you want to limit your salt intake, just reduce it, or leave it out. It still tastes pretty dang good.
  4. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  5. Combine all the ingredients together, and store until needed.
  6. PLATE/PRESENT
  7. I use about 2 – 3 tablespoons per pound of fajita meat. Enjoy.
  8. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
