Tajin - Mexican seasoning with chile powder, lime and salt

One of our DC California friends - either Cheryl or Kayelle, I think - has mentioned this seasoning several times. I saw it at Kroger today and bought it.

Rut roh! I'm in trouble now! This is sooooo gooood! I was shredding chicken breast for quesadillas tonight and sprinkled some on a piece to taste it. And taste it. And taste it... It's really good.

I sprinkled some in my shredded chicken with chopped tomatillos and homemade salsa that will be the quesadilla filling.

Have you tried this? If so, how do you use it?

It really is good, isn't it? A friend who lives in Mexico turned me on to Tajin. Try it on sliced mangos and papaya. Oh, and fresh pineapple!

Avocado slices would be another thought.

Ohhhhhhhhh yeah, I love that stuff!! It's great on melon, and all kinds of fruit, not to mention grilled shrimp! I've been known to use only Tajin to generously season a whole chicken for beer butt chicken. It's even good on cottage cheese. You're hooked now GG!!

I've seen that seasoning at Walmart in town. Definitely going to have to try it now after reading this thread.

I've never even thought of putting seasoning on fruit. I think I'll have to look around for this and give it a try.

I haven't tried this, but I bet it would be good to rim the glasses for margaritas or Bloody Marys.
