Our South American inspired chili lime seasoning stars the Mexican chile, the Guajillo Chile, and you can use this blend to add authentic South American flavor to dishes made with beef, chicken, pork, seafood, vegetables, ceviche, empanadas or tamales. We also list using this to add some unexpected zest to dressings, guacamole, marinades, sauces, soups and stews.

It adds a unique flavor to grilled chicken or shrimp and when added to chips and popcorn will make your guests ask for your secret ingredient! Once you're tried this seasoning you'll find yourself adding it to marinades, salsas and sauces as well.

I first came across this seasoning when looking for a different type of flavor enhancer for fruit. Seasoning fruit with chile peppers and salt is common throughout Mexico and Southeast Asia. A trip through Mexico will show you just how popular this is as it is found in small markets on side streets and at stands throughout parks where you'll find vendors selling fruit and little baggies of chili seasoning salt.

If you've never used a spice blend to bring an over, or under, ripe watermelon to life you're in for a treat. This spicy combination isn't just confined to watermelon either as it works its powerful magic on fruits like apples, cantaloupe, mango and papaya as well. We've also tried it on vegetables like cucumbers and jicama with mouthwatering results.

Now most of the chili lime seasoning blends you can find are heavy on the salt but I tend to gravitate more towards seasoning blends with less sugar and salt in them. This blend has been developed and tested with significantly less salt while still be loaded with flavor. After all you can always add more salt if you chose.

When researching various chili lime seasoning blend recipes I found the use of a variety of chiles - everything from Aleppo and New Mexico chiles on the milder side to those that pack a lot more heat by using Habanero or Ghost chiles. It's also common to see a chili powder blend used as the heat base. Many of these blends also favor a dried lime powder that is "enhanced" with lime flavorings. I've never been a fan of adding flavoring "enhancers" to any of our blends.

Our Chili Lime Seasoning is hand blended from California garlic, cumin, cayenne, sea salt, California onion, coriander, citric acid, lime, sugar, California paprika and guajillo.

The flavor profile of this delightful blend has the heat from the chiles which balances well with the tartness of the lime juice powder and you'll also pick up the undertones of sweetness provided by the demerara sugar. The flavors are all brought together nicely with the natural earthiness of the cumin and coriander. This versatile seasoning is destined to become a favorite in many households.

Chili Lime Seasoning I use it when I make grilled shrimp tacos with a creamy lime dressing...not to spicy...a pretty good blend of spices...a little more lime taste would really make this rock..

Decent Tajin Replacement I bought this to see if it would replace Tajin for me. For the most part it, it does. The spices taste fresher (duh) and it has a more rounded flavor. My main complaint is that it lacks the same lime & citric acid pop that I like from Tajin. It exists, but it's not as pronounced as I like. Adding some additional citric acid was an easy fix for the level of sour I wanted. It still lacked some of the lime flavor, though.

Literally stunk up my entire kitchen! The name of the spice is chili lime salt, there was nothing close to anything that resembled chili, lime, or salt. I'll tell you what it did have though, tons of cumin! It was so stinky that at the end of the day we had to throw it out. Don't even think about trying this on your favorite rimmer, it is not even a good dry rub. if this is how spices are put together, this was my first purchase and will more than likely be my last with this company.
