Tajin Habanero Seasoning

Tajin Habanero Seasoning is made with the best Mexican Habanero chillies carefully blended with lime and sea salt. It is produced in Zapopan, Mexico from world-class chillies sourced in the region. Add a unique zing to your food and enhance your favorite fish and seafood dishes with the perfect balance of heat. You can use Tajin seasoning on all types of dishes. You can try it on fish and seafood, fruits, veggies, and more! 

Tajin has offered a tasty blend of mild chili peppers, lime, and sea salt since 1985. Today, Tajin is sold in over 30 countries making it the leading brand in both Mexico and the United states.

Popular ways to use Tajin:

  • On Fruit: Add a pinch of Tajin when eating pineapple or watermelon. Or, try making a Mexican Fruit Cup!
  • Cocktails: Use Tajin to coat the rims of glasses for Mexican drinks like micheladas, bloody marys, and margaritas.
  • Corn: Sprinkle a dash of Tajin over grilled or boiled corn. This is the primary intent for creating the Tajin spice! 
  • Meat rubs: Tajin works very well in marinades and rubs for chicken, steak, fish, and shrimp.
  • Guacamole: Crush a few avocados and add some Tajin Habanero Seasoning and you won’t need much else to create your homemade dip.
