Homemade Fajita Seasoning

There is just something about making your own recipes instead of having to go buy a mix to finish making supper. Knowing a recipe, or where to find a recipe, for your own seasonings is extremely helpful. This homemade fajita seasoning recipe is just one excellent example.

If you have been reading Forgetful Momma for any amount of time, or have checked out my Recipe Box, then you know that I prefer to make our own seasonings. This Fajita seasoning is no different.

Why do I make so many instead of buying them? Simple. I have all the spice in my cupboard, so why buy them in a little bag, costing more money than I really need to, when they are already in my cupboard.

We have been growing our own herbs through the summers along with our vegetables and fruits. If you too grow your own herbs, you can dry them and then use them to make this fajita seasoning and other dried seasoning mixes.

We have a dehydrator that we use for fruits, for drying our herbs, and for making beef jerky once in awhile. This one is very similar to the one we have a use. Ours is a bit older now but still works amazing. I have a number of pots of herbs on the go this summer, fingers crossed that they all grow. Apparently our chicken will love some of them.
