Measure the spices, use a fork to stir until all of the ingredients are well combined. You can also just add everything into a small jar and shake until well combined. Store in a cool, dark place for up to a couple of weeks for optimal freshness and taste.
If you’d like a non-spicy mix omit the pepper flakes and add a total of 2 Tablespoons of sweet paprika. Instead of red pepper flakes you can also use red chili powder or ground chipotle pepper for a smoky tasting fajita mix. The use of powdered garlic and onion is so that it adheres to your ingredients better than granulated garlic and onion.
