    This is very good! I used it to season my Ground Beef Fajitas last night and they turned out great! Thanks!

    I loved this recipe and will use it again! I made double to use for another time. I made beef fajitas and they were great! Thanks!

    Very good! I substituted reduced sodium salt to further reduce sodium and used smoked paprika, also increase the cumin.
    I plan on keeping this on hand for fast meal prep, much better than the packets of salt laden spices.

    This worked great with some oil, lime juice, and water as a chicken fajita marinade!

    At the last minute we decided to have fajitas and this mix worked very well for seasoning. We will be making this again, perhaps in larger quantities to have on hand.

    Wonderful fajita seasoning. I rubbed it on boneless skinless chicken breasts and grilled them, then served them as fajitas. This could be used a virtually anything. So much more flavor than packet mix.

    Very good taco seasoning. I didn’t have any onion powder, but it was ok without. So far I’ve used it for beef and tuna taco feeling and it’s given a great flavour, I now have a large jar of it in my cupboard for future use!

    I make this up and use it all the time! Love it!

    I misplaced my usual recipe for fajitas so searched for a recipe that used similar spices. Your recipe was very close to it so I was really happy. I added 2 tbsp lime juice to the spices to marinate the meat in (as that is how my old recipe was) and they turned out fabulous. So thank you for posting this!
