Fajita Seasoning Mix

Fajitas are something I like to serve to a crowd, so when we have people over I’ll cook a big pan of the filling and lay it out on the table along with the wraps, shredded cheese, salsa, guacamole and whatever else I might have to stuff them with. It makes it easy on me to just let everyone make their own and I can sit back and enjoy our company.

My husband has been begging for fajitas for a while now so I thought I should probably make some tonight.

Fajita Seasoning Mix

1 tablespoon corn starch
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon cumin

Big Batch

6 tablespoons corn starch
4 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
1 ½ teaspoons cayenne
1 ½ teaspoons cumin

What else you’ll need

1 pound boneless chicken breasts cut in strips
Dash of vegetable oil
1 large onion sliced
2 red bell peppers sliced

Toss the chicken strips in about 3 tablespoons of mix and set aside.

Fry onion until tender and then add coated meat.

When chicken is cooked through add the peppers and cook until tender.

Serve with tortillas and your favourite toppings.



  1. That looks incredible.

    I have a question - in the image with the spices, it looks like one of the spices is green and I can't see a green spice in the ingredient list. Is it my imagination?

  2. The cumin has a greenish tinge

  3. A nice blend of spices. However, it was too salty for my family's taste, so I will reduce the salt next time.

  4. this recipe is great, I have a question as well. what do cornstarch do for the mix

  5. The corn starch thickens it.

  6. I found your website today and tried this for fajitas. My husband said it is the best way I have ever made fajitas. I have tried all sorts of marinades, mixes, etc. and he said this was by far the best. I followed it to a T except with no cayenne. It really was delicious!!!

  7. This is one of my favorite mixes, we use it all the time. It's also my go-to mix for gift mixes, everyone I give this one too loves it and asks for more. I'm glad you liked it.
