Tajin! - Need more ideas for use!

After reading so much from so many of you about how terrific this seasoning is, I finally found it! Purely by luck, too, since I wasn't actually looking for it this time, but rather hunting down Himself when we were at Aldi's a couple days ago and he was standing right in front of it. Serendipity!

Tasty little bugger! Now I want to hear ALL of you suggestions on how to use it and what to put it on. My first thought was "watermelon"! Or "apple slices"! Or - or - or... I bet there are so many ways to use it I'll never think of them all. That's why I'm asking for your suggestions please.

Fire away! And thanks.

Avocados!

I also used it to season a Mexican-flavored slaw for shrimp tacos.

Looking forward to more ideas!

Tajin!

It's delicious on mango slices and pineapple.

I love it on cottage cheese, most fruits and avocado as mentioned. It's terrific for fish and chicken too. These shrimp were fire grilled with just butter and Tajin'.

Remembering now, it's wonderful on buttered corn on the cob! Corn season will be here before we know it.

I've looked for Tajin a few times in our local Albertsons, and haven't been able to find it. They have a good spice/seasoning section and I looked as recently as last week. It MUST be there, and I'm just not seeing it.

I even have a pic of it in my phone so that I can look for the red/white/green label.

Mmmm....corn season! 4 ears for a dollar yesterday - I bought 8.

I found it once in the Mexican section of Vons Cheryl.

For those who don't know what it looks like....

Thanks for the tip Kay - I never thought to look for it in the Mexican section.

Any salad benefits from Tajin, unless you are making a specific recipe salad.

Cheryl, if you cannot find it, let me know and I will send you some.

I'm intrigued - we don't get it over here, would anyone be able to tell me how to make it? I love these magical spice mixes because they make dining so much more interesting!
