What you need for the fajita seasoning or marinade

This fajitas seasoning recipe has been my go-to recipe every time I am preparing fajitas. This seasoning brings out all the bold flavors a fajita recipe should have.

  • Paprika: Use any kind of paprika you have at home. Mild, smoked {what I used in this shrimp fajitas}, or whatever you already have will work.
  • Cayenne Pepper: This gives it that little kick in the spicy department. Of you aren’t too fond of spicy, then you can skip the cayenne pepper.
  • Cumin Powder: I find this ingredient essential. It brings out the flavors of the fajitas seasoning.
  • Garlic Powder and Salt
