A great seasoning is key to making delicious fajitas.
If you’ve ever had fajitas, you know they are delicious. And if you haven’t had them yet, well…you’re missing out! Fajitas are a great way to get your family together around the dinner table and enjoy some good food.
They’re also a great way to use up leftover meat or veggies that might otherwise be thrown away because they don’t fit into any other recipes. This recipe will help ensure that your leftovers go toward making something delicious instead of ending up in the trash can (which would make me sad).
The spice mix will keep for a long time, so make it in bulk.
The spice mix will keep for a long time, so make it in bulk. You can store it in a jar or container and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it again.

Make sure you have a good jar or container to keep the mix in.
You’ll want to have a good jar or container to keep the mix in. It needs to be airtight, so that it doesn’t lose its flavor over time. You also want it to be easy to open with one hand, as you’ll likely be using this seasoning mix while cooking dinner or doing other things around the house.
Finally, consider how easy your container will be for storing and cleaning. You don’t want something too big because then there will be leftovers after every meal (which we’re sure you wouldn’t mind). But if it’s too small, then what happens when you run out?
You’ll need some sort of container that holds your fajita seasoning.
You’ll need some sort of container that holds your fajita seasoning. You can use a glass jar or plastic container, but I prefer tupperware because it’s airtight and keeps the spices fresh for longer. If you don’t have any of these options available, an airtight plastic bag or glass jar also work well!
