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.
