Homemade Fajita Seasoning: 10 Killer Ways to Unique Fajita Uses

Homemade Fajita seasoning mix.

what is fajita?

A fajita in Tex-Mex is any grilled meat with grilled vegetables. It is usually served on a flour tortilla and is typically made with skirt steak. All the veggies and meat are cut into strips for making this delicacy.

The primary ingredients of fajita seasoning.

Paprika or smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt, garlic powder, onion powder. Must add a pinch of sugar. This enhances the taste and makes it restaurant style. This creates a dry rub.  Add lemon or lime juice, then it becomes a fajita marinade. 

I also added lime juice in the fajitas marinade.

You can also go for orange juice. But do not add sugar in this case

Quick tip.

If cumin is not available, then you can add HOMEMADE CURRY POWDER. It will make your fajita more tempting.

What is the difference between taco and fajita seasoning?

It’s my point of view what I personally think.

1 There is a difference in the folding of tortillas on fajita and taco seasoning. Open-faced tortillas are used in tacos, while fajita is folded like shawarma sidewise.

2 I used lemon juice, lime juice, or vinegar makes fajita acidic and sour in taste. While taco seasoning has no such property.

3. I add garlic powder and onion powder in fajitas seasoning but prefer to use fresh chop garlic in taco seasoning. It provides fantastic flavor to my recipes.

4 Roasted cumin is an essential ingredient of fajita seasoning. While in tacos, I include Cayenne pepper and paprika powder to develop the best flavor out of the taco seasoning mix.
