Tajin seasoning uses

If you ever set foot in Mexico you can’t miss their favourite seasoning mix: Tajin.

Tajin is a brand name, but it became associated with the mix itself. It’s a blend of powdered lime and chili and it’s absolutely delicious. My palate was introduced to a whole new world of flavours, because Mexicans put Tajin on the most surprising things. It adds complexity to sweet flavours and depth to the savoury ones.

The composing ingredients are: salt, chili, lime and a little bit of anti-caking agent. Not 100% natural, but not evil either.

I wish that I could ship one bottle to each and every one of you so you can try it for yourselves.

As a big fan of citric flavours, and one of those people who crave lemon water in the morning and put lemon everywhere, you must’ve guess that I became addicted to it. So here are the most common uses for Tajin:

Tajin seasoning uses in Mexico

  • Tacos: Of course!
  • In cocktails: The most famous being Micheladas and Margaritas. The colourful granules that you see on the edge of cocktail is a mix of Tajin and sugar
  • On cucumbers: While I enjoy the watery taste of cucumbers au naturel, adding tajin makes their flavour pops a lot more
  • On a fruit salad: The most common combination that I see here is with very sweet ripe mangoes and watermelon
  • In popsicles: the famous paletas with pineapple and mango
  • On corn: Either on elotes (corn on the cob) or esquites, corn  in a cup with mayonnaise and chili
  • My favourite: On avocados and guacamole! If you put Tajin on your avocado toast, it needs nothing more to taste absolutely amazing.
  • Potato chips: and corn chips, doritos and all cracking snacks.
