For those who are fans of lime and chile, fresh, juicy fruit or jicama wedges that are crunchy appear almost uninteresting without a little salt and spice. This is the reason why Tajin Clasico Seasoning is available.
A blend with mild powdered chile salt and lime dehydrated, Tajin (pronounced Tah-HEEN) can add a punch to your fruit and everything else it comes into contact with. Imagine it as an orange-lemon pepper or Mrs. Dash style seasoning, but zestier, tangier, and with a stronger chile flavor.
Tajin isn’t a new invention. It was first invented in Mexico in 1985. It was then was introduced to the U.S. market in 1993. The Mexican-American communities of America U.S. have loved it for many years because spicy, salty, and sour tastes are a favorite in Mexican cuisine. Growing up, in my own house, we sprinkled a precursor to Tajin on jicama and cucumber and tomato slices for a burst of tangy-spicy-saltiness.

People who are a fan of Tajin truly, really enjoy it. I know a person who has a bottle of Tajin within her wallet. (Tajin produces tiny bottles for purses since they are familiar with them.) Other brands have joined the mix too. Trader Joe’s has a chile-lime seasoning mix, and Penzeys also has a product called Pico Fruta with chile, sugar, lemon, and cilantro.
The distinction between the two Tajin as opposed to regular powdered chile is that Tajin is more salty and acidic because of lime. However, Tajin isn’t strong a flavor as vinegary hot sauce would be. You’ll reach for Tajin if you do not want to drown your food with heat; just add a bit of spice.
Here are some additional ideas for using Tajin. (Once you begin using it, you may feel the urge to apply it everywhere.)
