OMGish! I love that first pic!

Quoting rhiannonaisling:

I didn't realize what this spice, Tajin, was at first.


I used to eat a homemade version of this as a child on almost all of my fruits and vegetables (when I was at my dad's parents). I have been looking for something like this for years! I am sooo thrilled to have found Tajin. My kids love it (even the ones that don't like spicier foods). I got a ton of fruits and veggies (broccoli, grape tomatos, cucumber, carrots, oranges, cantaloupe, and celery) and cut them up with my youngest who loves his new apron (the apron didn't fit me) and then we sprinkled on low sodium Tajin (except for the cantaloupe which I used original Tajin on).


I am planning to make tuna patato cakes with Tajin tomorrow and I added it to some leftover chicken soup today that I will be eating for lunch tomorrow.



I think because of nostalgia that I definitely prefer the fruits and vegetables with Tajin.

We got our package last night, yay!  We tasted the seasoning by itself and are all excited to try it out!  We will be using it on some leftover fruit today and dinner tonight.

What does it taste like?

Sorry it took so long. I was having a hard time with my phone. The first night bombed..it does not go well with cat fish nuggets lol. The next night I tried it with bbqued pork chops and corn, my husband was skeptical at first because of what happened to the nuggets, but they turned out fantastic. The next night I used it on my chicken and my veggies and it brought a hint of new flavoring in. I made spaghetti on the last night, added Tajin to the sauce and meat. It was fantastic. I really enjoy using this product.

Must have been really good in the beer!

Quoting kloesmommy:

Just got my tajin today and the first thing my husband did was dump some in his beer- sounds crazy but he swore it was what this seasoning was made for. Within 5 minutes he had the neighbor guys drinking it in theirs. We dumped some on some tortilla chips and my daughter and the 4 neighbor girls went to town. Going to try some new recipes tomorrow night.

Can't go wrong with Old Bay.  Worcestershire, hot sauce, soy sauce...
