Homemade Fajita Seasoning, Sweet and Smoky Blend.

Perfect for slow cooked chicken fajitas. This seasoning has a medium spice kick with a hint of sweet and smoky flavor.

Fajita Seasoning, sweet and smoky

Fajitas, like tacos, are a family favorite around our house. When we began preparing our own homemade meals we were happy buying pre-made spice packages. But as I’ve grown in my food journeys I’ve learned making my own spice blends can be pretty easy (see my Taco Spice blog post). Not only are they easy to prepare, but I can adjust the flavors to my family needs. My Sweet and Smoky Fajita Seasoning was a family hit!Enjoy!



  • 2 1/2 tsp chili powder 
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika 
  • 3/4 tsp coriander 
  • 1 tsp kosher salt 
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper 
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1/4 tsp sugar 
  • 1/2 tbsp corn starch 


     Place all spices into a bowl and mix well. Use spice to your taste or as you would use any pre-made packaged spice.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Our family loves to eat tacos, and we eat them often. This homemade taco seasoning has been a huge success and has become our go to taco spice.

I’m all about saving money, so making my own taco seasoning only made sense. But, like many people out there, I reasoned in my mind that it was probably too difficult for me to pull off. I never took the time to learn how make it, until now of course. And like many things I’ve learned through my food journeys, it’s amazingly simple! No really, it’s easy and takes under five minutes to prepare.


1 3/4 tablespoons Chili powder

3/4 tablespoon Cumin

2 teaspoons Kosher salt

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 1/2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika

1 teaspoon Coriander

1 1/2 teaspoons Cayenne pepper


This couldn’t be any more simple! Put all the ingredients into a small jar with a lid and shake until mixed well. That’s it, your done! Use the spice in cooking as you would a per-made store bought package.
