  • You can buy a seasoning pack of Fajita seasoning.

  • I just do it myself. I find the prepackaged ones too salty. I add salt, pepper, cumin and chili powder together in a small bowl and sprinkle it liberally on the meat/veg. The cumin is the important one. It's the one that give taco/fajita seasoning that distinctive "mexican" taste.

  • I use this: Taco Seasoning:
    4.5 tsp. paprika;
    1 tsp. cumin powder;
    0.5 tsp. oregano;
    1 tsp. chili powder;
    1 tsp. onion powder;
    0.25 tsp. lemon powder (optional, I've never used it);
    1 tsp. salt;
    1 tsp. sugar;
    0.5 tsp. garlic powder;
    1 tsp. flour;
    0.5 tsp. cocoa powder
    Mix all together and store in airtight container. Makes approx. 4 tablespoonful - the equivalent of 1 package of seasoning (enough to season 1 pound of meat or a substitute). This mix is very mild, I add cayenne.
