If a little extra falls into the jar while you are measuring, it’s not the end of the world, just go with it. It will be better than any fajita seasoning mix blend you would buy at the store.

It should look all nice and pretty like sand art when you have all of your ingredients added to the jar. I could have used an 8 oz half pint or jelly jar for this fajita seasoning mix but wasn’t too sure when I got started.
