Check out this great coupon for a Tajín 5oz bottle here to take the taste of your fruits & veggies to a new level!

Pronounced TA-HEEN, Tajín is a well balanced blend of three simple ingredients: dried chili peppers, sea salt and dehydrated lime in powder formulation. Tajín is used primarily to season fruits and vegetables, an authentic cultural tradition in Mexico and other countries in Latin America.

 your kid is adorable...so expressive...LOVE it!

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.

I'm guessing it was cause between the 5 of them, they killed a while bottle of this stuff
ETA not in one night- but in less than two weeks we've gone through the whole low sodium bottle and half of the other one- but I'd say at least 2/3 was used on beer. Dh also put some on burgers one night and it was pretty awesome.

Quoting sukainah:Must have been r7TXV-6L3MZR-U69Veally 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.

I've never heard of this before. I just use seasoned salt, pepper and salt, garlic powder

I need to get some for my DH to try in his beer too. He likes the lime salt in his beer so I am sure he would love this one even more!

Dh uses it. Its a great substitute for his Tapitío. He is the only one in the house that eats spicy food so he likes to put it on every thing. He just didn't care for the paste style. We first discovered it during our last trip to Mexico and brought back a huge bottle. Dh and both sd downed it in a week.

I think I'd first try it on chicken.  I'm sure it's good on veggies too.  Not so sure about trying it on fruit.
