Is taco seasoning different than fajita seasoning?

Yes it is, but there is not a significant difference. Taco seasoning contains a higher amount of chili powder, as well as red pepper flakes and oregano. Those flavors contribute to taco seasoning having a little more of a kick. Fajita seasoning is more subtle in flavor where the spices aren’t so robust. When in a pinch, you can definitely interchange the two.

Taco seasoning is something we use frequently. I will take this recipe and double or triple it sometimes so I always have it on hand. Making a larger batch doesn’t interfere with the integrity of the flavor so it’s an awesome time-saver. We use it in our Mexican Instant Pot Chicken and with our Instant Pot Enchilada Bowl. A lot of retail stores offer great storage options for spices. I found these cuties at Walmart and they are only $.98! Love them!
