Charley’s Fajita Spice Mix

We consulted the internet and found several recipes, examining the feel, flavor, and core tastes of the fajita spice mix! To get the taste that other chefs like and modify it to match our tastes and our pantry is always the challenge, but I find it really easy!  A little more of this, a little less of that, oh my we have noe of this, or something like that and you will be file. Some leave out the garlic, some leave out the cayenne, everyone has their fears, loves, and exclusions. I encourage you to develop your own version, we have fun, and you just might too!  

So here it comes, our version:


1 Tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder (optional)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

No Disclaimers, Only good tastes, every different version is like going to a different restaurant.
