If you love Tajin, the ridiculously tangy and delicious seasoning made with chiles, salt, and dehydrated lime juice, you’ll be thrilled to know the company has a new spicier version: Habanero Tajin. I’ve been sprinkling it on everything! Scrambled eggs, smashed avocado on toast, into salsa, even on fruit (try in on papayas and strawberries!). I found it at Northgate Gonzalez, but look for it at other Hispanic markets.

Here’s a recipe for a refreshing fruit pico de gallo from the Tajin folks: 

Fruit Pico de Gallo

Serves 4

  • 2 seeded cucumbers
  • ½ jicama
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • Juice of 2 oranges
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons Tajin Habanero

Cube the vegetables and pineapple. Mix with the rest of the ingredients and serve alone or with tostadas or chips.
