Add a mix of fajita seasoning with the complete blend of spices and wrap it up in a fresh corn tortilla and you have the perfect sandwich. Fortunately, the recipe for fajita seasoning is really easy to make.

After you've made the main fajita - the meat, onions, peppers and anything else that you're frying - spread your tortilla with any condiments that you like. You can use mayonnaise, pesto, chilli sauce or any of your other favourite condiments. Add lettuce, pickles and tomatoes, heap the fajita meat on, and top it off with the seasoning. Roll it up and you're ready to go.
