I recently made a delicious mango and avocado salad with strawberries and in that salad I used my homemade chili and lime seasoning to take it over the top. I asked you if you wanted to see how it is made and the response was overwhelming! Of course you wanted to see it made! So today I am going to share with you this very simple yet delicious three ingredient chili and lime seasoning!
This is very similar to a popular Latin seasoning that you can usually find in the produce section called Tajin. It is a chili and lime seasoning that is popular in some areas. I see this a lot when the mangoes come into season in the spring and in the fall. Growing up in Arizona I remember this seasoning being used on all kinds of fruit as well as on, believe it or not, fruit pops! Some people love the sweet and savory mixture of flavors together.
My seasoning consists of three simple ingredients. Salt, chili powder and lime crystals. I have used my favorite, every day salt, pink Himalayan salt along with a basic chili powder and my favorite new find, True Lime, lime juice crystals! The "True" juice powders come in lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit and I love them. I purchased a little bit of everything from their website and I have to tell you that these are awesome. I am using these juice crystals in so many recipes and I have even used them in some homemade cleaning spray!
I just used equal parts of the three ingredients, in my case 1 tablespoon of each and put them into a jelly jar. I screwed the lid on tight and gave it a good shake to distribute everything evenly. That's it! Super simple and super delicious. This seasoning is a great way to add some zing to just about any salad or soup that you can think of. I would use this as I would salt or pepper to add a special something to fruit or veggie salads or even an egg or potato salad would benefit from this chili and lime seasoning!
You can make as much or as little as you like. If you make a big batch you can share and give as gifts to family and friends! This is a great addition to a holiday gift basket or theme gift for the holidays, birthdays or anytime!
