Tajín Grilled Chicken Recipe - NYT Cooking

Tajín is a Mexican seasoning made from dried, ground red chiles, sea salt and dehydrated lime juice. It’s great sprinkled over freshly cut fruits like mango and pineapple, or rimmed on an ice cold margarita. But it’s also an easy way to add chili and lime to your favorite grilled meats, rubs or sauces. In this dish, the lime in the Tajín offsets the sweetness of the agave syrup, while the red peppers complement the smoky flavor of the chipotles. Serve the chicken as is or on toasted hamburger buns with a dash of mayonnaise, chopped grilled scallions, cilantro leaves, and sliced ​​jalapeños. This Tajín sauce also goes well with grilled sea bass, cod or salmon, or with shrimp skewers.
