Or Was I????
We all have our addictions. The hope as we grow older is that the addictions will mature and maybe have less potential for death.
At least that’s how I approach it.
My current, can’t-live-without-it thing is Tajin, a seasoning that is a blend of mild chili peppers, lime, and sea salt. A most delicious blend, I might add.

I first got hooked on the stuff when I lived in West Los Angeles. There are fruit carts all over L.A. where you can have a giant cup filled with very fresh fruits of your choice, then have it all topped off with freshly squeezed lime and Tajin. My daughter loved the things, especially after a run on a warm day.
I’m not sure why, but I hadn’t been using the stuff much for a year or so until I came across a keto-friendly margarita recipe that had the glass rimmed with Tajin. Of course, Tajin also comes in a container specifically designed for rimming margarita glasses. Because it cares.
Since then, I’ve been going through it faster than ever before. I used to only put it on a few things, like fruit and cucumbers (a current fave of mine) but now I’m surprised I’m not sprinkling it on the cat just for the hell of it.
Before I wrote this, I marinated a cod filet in lemon and Tajin. It was exquisite. Here is one of my favorite snacks right now: cucumber, lemon turmeric dressing, Tajin, and feta.
I occasionally find myself just sprinkling a little on my finger and licking it off.
Maybe I meant “frequently” there.
Anyway, if you haven’t tried it yet, trust me, you want to.
If you have, let me know what your favorite uses for it are.
