We love fajitas. They are a great quick and easy meal that my whole family loves. One of the ways that I save money making fajitas is to make my own seasoning at home. Homemade fajita seasoning is so easy to make.
I like to make up a large batch and keep it in a jar. This way I have it anytime I want to make fajitas, sheet pan fajitas, crock pot fajitas, or any other recipes that uses fajita seasoning.
I have been making this fajita seasoning for years. It is the closest to the store bought version that I have found and we love it.
