Keto Fajita Seasoning
One great thing about making your own keto-friendly fajita spice mix is that you can customize it to your and your family’s taste! If you’re a lover of spicy food you can add more of the chipotle powder and cayenne pepper.
If you’re more sensitive to spicy foods or you’re cooking for others who you’re unsure of their tolerance you can add less. You really can customize this blend as much as you’d like by simplifying tasting a little as you go.
Another thing you can control easily when creating your own fajita mix is how much salt if any, you use. You can choose to add more or less of the salt or even leave out the salt completely so that you have control of salt content when cooking with it later.
Easily my favorite benefit of making this low carb fajita seasoning is how much time it saves me when cooking! I was truly surprised! It’s the perfect solution for busy weeknights when you want to bring dinner to the table quickly.
Or when you want to make Mexican food on the weekend and avoid going to a Mexican restaurant where you risk getting kicked out of ketosis from all the weird ingredients that could be hiding in their own seasonings.
Instead of pulling out all of my spices from the cabinet, I can just reach for one jar!
Combining your own seasoning mixes with some lime juice and olive oil and instantly you have the beginning of a great meal in the works. Delicious fajitas are moments away once you have a handy jar ready to season.
It makes for easier, faster, and makes for cleaner cooking! Those are all things we can use more of every day in the kitchen if you ask me.
Sugar-Free Fajita Seasoning
Now, you might be thinking, “why do I need to make a keto fajita seasoning?” since spices don’t have carbs. Well, when you purchase the pre-made seasoning blends at the store many times contain things like whole wheat flour and corn syrup!
Those pesky hidden carbs we don’t even realize we’re consuming can add up rather quickly. It’s why making your own blends, seasonings, rubs, and marinades at home are a great way to know exactly what’s in your food.
Making your own homemade keto fajita seasoning and keeping it stored in an air-tight container for easy access is just what you need for quick meal planning.
Yup, you should totally make this seasoning mix part of your meal prep Sunday routine.
I use this mix to make our keto chicken fajitas, keto steak fajitas, and keto shrimp fajitas but frankly, that’s just scratching the surface of all the recipes you can create simply once you have your own premade mix that you have customized to fit your family’s needs.
