    Recipes with Tajin seasoning

    I love Tajin, I want to try some recipes that incorporate Tajin in the seasoning. Does anyone have any recipes to share?
    Attached Files

    I don’t have any recipes but it seems suited to fish tacos and dipped limes for tequila shots.


      It goes on nearly anything...

      Go to the source:

      But also, sprinkle on watermelon.

        Yeah, just smoke the ribs and sauce late... I might add a bit of brown sugar to the tajin for the rub... just to bark better.

      Stop it, Stop it, now I got to get some in a store near me.


        Thanks potkettleblack


          We use it on corn on the cob with some Mayo to create a cheap and tasty version of elote corn. Delicious.

            The cotija makes it...

          Looks like some interesting stuff. Chili peppers could mean who knows peppers which could be cool. No sugar or any other junk. Got to try it. By what I see I think Potkettleblack is right, looks good on anything.


            Rub the rim of your glass with lime and dip in Tajin. Then fill the glass with a michelada or your favorite Bloody Mary recipe. And what was mentioned above: watermelon, honeydew, etc.


              The best use is on the rim of a freshly made spicy margarita. Second best use on a rim of a michelada.

              As far as food, sprinkle some on fresh mango, papaya, honeydew, etc. Also on frozen ice pops too. I haven't cooked with it besides also using it on freshly grilled and buttered corn. Bet it would be a great topping on french fries or roasted potatoes.


                How is it that I've never heard of "Tajin" before this?!?!?! Argh. I've sworn off spice purchases until I deplete the 100+ bottles in the pantry already!

                  You need a critical mass of Mexican Americans in your grocery service area... It's in nearly every store in Chicago...

                  Potkettleblack I think we are at critical mass here - I've just not been aware of this particular spice, and have probably walked past it many times.

                  You might have different Chili Lime seasoning, like Badia. In the latin/ethnic whatever they call it in your store. Or with the fruit, like mangos.

                It is really good. It is not spicy it is a perfect blend of spices, acidity, and salt.

                I just tried some on my Tri tip tonight as a finishing seasoning and it was fabulous.

                    And now I have to watch 40 videos to learn the backyard trim of Harry Soo and the whole process... DAMMIT!

                  Put it on fruit. For instance, grill so e watermelon or mango and then put it on that.


                    Last week I had a huge Mexican restaurant margarita on the rocks. I’m usually a beer guy. Tajin seasoning was on the rim and it was fantastic! Gonna buy some and experiment.

                      A tajin seasoned lime on a light flavored mexican beer is pretty lit too.

                    I cant remember where I saved this recipe from but it is delicious for the rim of a glass of a mango margarita.

                    MANGO MARGARITAS
                    • 1 ripe mango, cubed (~1 cup or 157 g)*
                    • 1 cup (240 ml) orange juice
                    • 2 small limes, juiced (~1 ounce)
                    • 2.5 -3 ounces (73 - 88 ml) silver tequila (depending on preferred strength of drink)
                    • 1 ounce (29.5 ml) triple sec or orange liqueur
                    • Dash hot sauce (optional)
                    • 1-3 (15-45 ml) Tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup (depending on sweetness of mango)

                    CHILI SALT RIM
                    • 1 lime wedge for rimming
                    • 1.5 tsp Tajin (or 1 tsp chili powder + 1/4 tsp sea salt)

                    1. Add all margarita ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness / strength of alcohol as desired.
                    2. To chill, either blend in a large handful of ice cubes to make a frozen margarita, or transfer half of the mixture to a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice and shake vigorously.
                    3. Rim serving glasses with a lime wedge and immediately dip in salt/chili powder mixture (or sub just salt or sugar), and fill with 1 large ice cube or several small. Pour over margarita and garnish with lime wedge.


                    *To make a frozen blended margarita, you could also start with frozen mangos and omit the ice as instructed!

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
