Fajita Spice Mix

It’s getting too close to summer here that I’m already calling it summer. And you know what goes with summer?

Fajitas! We are working on getting a grill, but until then I have this nifty little cast iron grill that sets on top of two burners. It’s awesome! For burgers, portabella mushroom caps, and for just straight up grilling veggies for fajitas!

I usually just do 1 green and red bell pepper, 1 large onion, and 2 sliced portabella mushrooms to throw on the grill when we do fajitas. I also came up with my own fajita mix. I love chipotle chili power since it gives it an extra smokey flavor. Next time you fire up the grill, try out the fajita mix I made!

Fajita Spice Mix

  • Servings: makes about 1/4 cup
  • Print


  • 1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tbsp chipotle chili powder
  • 2 tbsp cumin powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Combine all and mix together. Add to your veggies or meat about 30 minutes before cooking. I put them in a large bag with a small amount of olive oil and mix it all together and let it rest in the fridge until ready to cook.
