Tajín has also joined forces with MasterChef Latino judge and MasterChef 6 winner Claudia Sandoval to create another 10 exclusive recipes that are available on www.tajin.com.
On partnering with Tajín, “I love how Tajín adds a special kick of flavor to a wide variety of dishes. As a mom and as a professional chef, I like to include Tajín as part of my seasoning mix in marinades or spice rubs, I use on chicken, fish and meat” said Claudia Sandoval, MasterChef Latino judge and Tajín’s spokesperson. “It really creates a unique flavor the entire family loves.”
Tajín Clásico Seasoning is the #1 chili lime seasoning in Mexico and the United States. In the past four years, the flavor has grown 65% on U.S. menus.
