Recipe Variations

Some of the ingredients in the fajita seasoning mix can be adjusted or removed to suit your needs. Here are some ideas:

  • Sweetener: I follow a keto/low carb lifestyle so I used erythritol rather than sugar in the recipe. If you’re not following a keto lifestyle feel free to use sugar in this seasoning mix. You can also leave out all sweeteners if you prefer. 
  • Cayenne pepper: If you really enjoy spicy food, you can add an extra 2 teaspoons to the mix. Or, you can leave it out if you don’t like your food spicy. 
  • Paprika: You can use smoked paprika if you have it.

How to make fajita seasoning
