Here are a few:

Fajita Seasoning

4 tbsp chili pwdr
2 tbsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground oregano
2 tsp garlic salt
Stir well and store air tight.....use as you would the pkts....using 2-3 tbsps of mix instead.....

I like to use left over meat, chicken, turkey, steak or roast. I cut the meat in strips then put it in the pan with strips of onion and gr pepper. Then add 2-3 tbsp of fajita seasoning and just a couple tbsp of water. Cook fast on a high heat... add only a little water if needed, a tbsp at a time until the veggies are tender enough. Then place on flour shell with cheese and what ever you like....



1 c fresh orange juice
1/2 c vegetable oil
1/4 c red wine-vinegar
1/4 c fresh lime juice
1 t seasoning mix (recipe to fol
1 minced garlic clove
6 T salt
1 1/2 t ground pepper
1 1/3 t chili powder
3/4 t garlic powder
3/4 t cumin

Mix and store in jar. Use as needed. Marinate 2 lb. skirt steak
in refrigerator over night.


There is a recipe in the Copycat Recipe Forum:


I hope these get you started.

Thanks for the fajita seasoning. Like Gina, I am tired of spending anywhere from $1-$2 each packet. I make a lot of mexican food and this recipe will definately come in handy for me.
