Tajin Seasoning

Tajín adds that little something to your dish. It is typically used as a finishing spice on raw fruit and cooked vegetables. Because of the citric acid and lime zest you get a bite of tang followed by the earthy heat from the chili powder. Try serving it on your steamed vegetables or fresh fruit to punch up the flavor and add a bit of color to your dish.

YIELD: 4 cups


2 cups chili powder

1 cup citric acid

1 cup Kosher salt

8 limes, zest only


  1. Remove the zest from all the limes. If you want to dry out zest, either lay out on parchment and place in a dry area overnight or place in microwave for 30 second increments until dry.
  2. Combine all ingredients into a bowl or container with a lid and mix thoroughly. Store in airtight container.
