El Paso: A New Flavor

Tajin, El Paso, Texas. October 2016.

October 2016


I was at the grocery store the other day. Buying cucumbers. The woman standing next to me asked what I intended to do with them. "I'm gonna slice 'em up and eat them raw," I said. And she said, "Chile and limón!" And I said, "Eh?" And she led me to the canasta filled with tall, slender bottles of Tajin chili-and-lime seasoning. And my life now has a brand-new flavor.

Hey, this is what my Guatemalan Spanish teacher was telling me about - chiles and lime on her cantaloupe, watermelon, mangoes, and popcorn.

Mmmmm.

A former TLG colleague recommended that I try Tajin with jícama. Yes.
