It’s not often that spices have a moment, but that was until Tajin started blowing up. Have you heard of this Mexican seasoning before? From sprinkling it on fruits and veggies to adding it to salty snacks and cocktails, Tajin is the spice you need in your kitchen. In fact, everyone seems to be obsessed with it. So, what is it exactly?
Tajin consists of fried and ground red chilies, sea salt, and dehydrated lime juice. It makes for a sweet, sour, and spicy taste to your favorite foods. In Mexico, Tajin is as popular as salt and it’s a pantry staple. While it’s a bit spicy, it’s more flavorful than hot, so you don’t have to worry about it burning your mouth.
The seasoning pairs beautifully with fruits like mango and watermelon and cocktails like bloody Marys and Mexican micheladas. It’s also amazing as a topping on avocado toast and popcorn and it goes nicely in dips.
The good news is you don’t have to cross the border to try the spice. You can find it at stores like Walmart or Target and you can order it from Amazon.
