Have You Tried Tajin?

by Joanna

I am not going to lie – I’ve been completely obsessed with a seasoning I “discovered” at the beginning of this year.  For those of you who know me, don’t roll you’re eyes because I’m talking about it again; this one is for those that I haven’t introduced this seasoning to. Smile

It’s called Tajin (pronounced “ta-heen”), and it’s amazing.  Widely used in Mexico, Central and South America, this seasoning is basically comprised of chili peppers, salt, dehydrated lime juice.  And what do you use it for?  Well, that’s the great part because the list of uses is very eclectic.  You can use it on fruit, vegetables, meat, potatoes, popcorn, drinks, and probably more that I don’t know about…yet.  Just type in Tajin on Pinterest and see what pops up!

I’ve tried it mostly on fruit and some vegetables including mango, cantaloupe, watermelon, pineapple, corn, cucumber, and carrots.  A little known secret about me – I hate watermelon.  But I love it when sprinkled with Tajin!

What does it taste like?  Mostly lime, then salt, then a little spice.  Not spicy a like jalapeño or ghost pepper, but like a kick.  Too much and it’s a bit sour.  Before sprinkling Tajin directly on your food, try pouring a little on the side and dipping into it.

I love it.  It makes food I eat frequently a little more interesting.  You can find it in the international food aisle in most grocery stores.  I even found mini jars!  And mini jars on a keychain!  Also, a low sodium version.  The possibilities are just endless.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
