Make your own Fajita Seasoning Mix using this easy recipe. This is a fairly mild mix, so if you like your Tex Mex food hot and spicy, add more chili powder, cayenne pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes. You could also increase the amount of onion and garlic powder used. You can also double or triple this recipe if you use it a lot.

When using this mix and you're rubbing it on raw meat, poultry or seafood, always remove some from the storage jar and place it in a small bowl. That way, as you take some seasoning mix out of the little bowl and rub it on the raw meat, you won't contaminate the entire batch.

If you are simply going to rub the mixture on steak, chicken, pork, or seafood before grilling it, omit the cornstarch. And be sure to check out my other Homemade Seasoning Mix Recipes and Homemade Mixes!

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons crushed chicken bouillon cube
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

How to Make It

Combine the cornstarch, chili powder, salt, paprika, sugar, crushed bouillon, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, and ground cumin in a small bowl and mix until the combination looks like one color.

Pour the mix into a small glass or plastic container, seal tightly and store in a cool, dry place. Makes the equivalent of 3 packets of commercial or purchased Fajita Seasoning Mix.
