• 2 tablespoons of onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground black petter
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground Cayenne

Ristras from the Petrogylph National Monument site.


Mix all the ingredients together and spin in a spice grinder, coffee grinder or rub the mixture through a fine metal strainer. Don't grind it too fine. Store the powder in an airtight jar.


This isn't just for fajitas. It makes a good Southwestern spice rub too. This recipe does not have much hot pepper heat. Add as much hot pepper powder as you like. And add as much salt as you like as well, but it doesn't need any. The photo above comes from the website of Petroglyph National Monument in New Mexico, near Albuquerque. The site is worh a visit and there's lots of information about chiles.
