What can I use if I don’t have fajita seasoning?

Fajita seasoning is typically made with a blend of chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, dried oregano, salt, cayenne, and ground pepper. You can make your own blend by mixing together a teaspoon of each spice, with the ground pepper, salt and cayenne being about 1/4 teaspoon each.
