I love when you can make your own seasoning mixes and they end up tasting better than what you can get at the grocery store.

That right there is a one way ticket straight to flavor-town. This seasoning works great on chicken, beef or any other protein you want! You can use it as a rub, in a marinade or sprinkled in like you use other dry seasonings.
And let me tell you, this seasoning mix is sooo full of flavor. I made crock pot beef fajitas with this mix and the juice left in the crock pot was so, so good. Like good enough to drink good. I’m pretty sure this seasoning would be killer added to a soup or stew. I know it’s a homemade fajita seasoning mix but it just might end up being a new all-purpose seasoning. It’s that good!
