Basic Fajita Seasoning Ingredients
2 tbsp each oregano (I use the oregano leaves not powder), chili powder, and cumin
1 tsp Himalayan salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 lime, juiced
I always use more chili powder and cumin to taste because I love that little bit of spicy the chili powder gives and I really just like the taste of cumin. I usually mix a double batch and depending on how much I use I will have leftover seasoning for my next batch of fajitas. It’s completely up to you how much seasoning you want to use, most of the time I use one batch of seasoning to two large chicken breast. I love a lot of flavor though!
Use the lime when you are ready to marinade. I cut two large chicken breast into fajita strips and then toss in a gallon bag with olive oil, lime juice (use more if you’d like, hubs is not a big fan of lime so I usually just add more when I make my fajita) and then toss in the fajita seasoning. I allow at least 24 hours for the chicken to marinade because it really picks up all the flavors the longer you marinade.
