Fajita spice mix - your suggestions

Ok, so I am looking for a really good fajita spice mix that has that real authentic taste. Ideally no tabasco sauce.

It seems that it should be simple but there are quite a few variations out there and the recipe I used last night was tasty but didn’t quite hit the spicy-sweet spot.

Yesterday’s spice mix (from the BBC’s easy fajita recipe but I didn’t have any tabasco sauce…:frowning: ):

For the marinade
1 heaped tbsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp ground coriander
pinch of ground cumin
2 medium garlic cloves, crushed
4 tbsp olive oil
1 lime, juiced
4-5 drops Tabasco

This is one that I have found today :

1 1/2 teaspoons ancho chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Note that there is a lack of coriander and tabasco :confused:

The BBC recipe was ok but maybe would have been great with Tabasco - or is that a no-no for Fajita purists?

Please do share any recipes and knowledge of how to create Fajita magic!
