Chili Lime Seasoning

| Last Updated: January 20, 2021 | , ,

Fiery with zing! Great as a rub or fruit seasoning…

Chili lime seasoning is ever more popular in supermarkets with the likes of Tajin leading the way. But sometimes it’s about the experimentation at home to create the perfect powder for your tastebuds. Use this chili lime seasoning as a base for culinary play.

We love adjusting the type of chili powder base used to create milder or earthier experiences. For example, opting in chipotle powder instead of chili powder brings additional heat and a delicious smokiness to the table. Use this seasoning as a steak rub or simply sprinkle it atop fruit for an excellent spiced snack alternative.

    • Hi there – In no way do we call this chili lime seasoning the same as “Tajin”. We mention that “Tajin” is a popular type of chili lime seasoning – there are many different ways to make the seasoning blend. We don’t call this a Tajin copycat recipe or anything of the sort – just another take on chili lime seasoning (and there are many out there.)

      So correct – this is not Tajin. It’s a chili lime seasoning recipe, of which there are many takes on the web. Not sure if that’s deserving of the anger.
