Sheet-Pan Fajitas with Homemade Fajita Seasoning

If you’re looking for a new way to spice up Taco Tuesday, look no farther! I have the perfect recipe to help spice up Taco Tuesday that’s so easy to throw together, you’ll even be able to make it on a weeknight!

I’m talking about my Sheet-Pan Fajitas with my super special Homemade Fajita Seasoning!

If you don’t want to make your own fajita seasoning, you can totally get the seasoning packet at the store! But I promise you, making this is super easy, and you might even have all the ingredients at home!

The first time I made this, I was sure that it was going to be just like the store-bought kind… I was so wrong! Seriously, it is SO much better! I don’t even feel like you can compare the two! The other benefit of making your own seasoning mix is that you can tweak it depending on your taste buds! I add a really low amount of cayenne pepper because I can struggle with spice sometimes, but if that doesn’t bother you, then load it up! It’s really a delicious spice seasoning!

I also use shrimp with these fajitas, but you can use chicken or steak if you’d like!

Ingredients:

1 pound of shrimp

2 green peppers

2 yellow peppers

2 orange peppers

1 red pepper

1 red onion

Seasoning:

1 1/2 teaspoon of paprika

1 1/2 teaspoon of cumin

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon of oregano leaves

1/2 teaspoon of onion powder

1/2 teaspoon of salt

Sprinkle of pepper

Combine all the spices into an airtight container. Stir together! This mixture will last you a while… if you can resist using it for that long!

Slice up the veggies into about half-inch strips. Place the vegetables onto a sheet pan and sprinkle with seasoning. Place in a 425-degree oven for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes are up, place the shrimp onto a sheet pan. I use frozen shrimp that I thaw in the fridge! Sprinkle another generous helping of the seasoning mixture over the shrimp and place back in the oven for another 10 minutes or until the shrimp are fully cooked and pink in color.

To serve, place some veggies and shrimp on a warmed tortilla, top with salsa, guacamole, and a sprinkle of lime juice!

Full confession here: I originally had half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper (Pictured above)… However, I discovered that was way too much for me and reduced the amount the next time I made it!
Gosh, I love how pretty this!
Best. Bite. Ever!

Oh my goodness, these are so delicious! I seriously can’t tell you what a difference it makes to make your own seasoning! It seems like each of the spices have their own chance to shine without all the salt weighing them down! I could eat the whole sheet pan and still want more!
