When it comes to fruit, the summertime is all about peaches and strawberries. These sweet, delicious fruits are not only in-season this time of year, making them have the most beautiful flavor, but they are ABUNDANT and plentiful, meaning that it is the perfect way to experiment with different methods of using them! And my Sweet & Sour Tajín Peaches & Strawberries may just be my favorite way to eat them yet. They are a little sweet, a little salty, and a little spicy, for a flavor that truly cannot be beat!
Friends, what is your favorite way to add some more excitement to ordinary fruits and veggies? For me, lately, it has been to add Tajín to them. If you are unfamiliar with this magical seasoning blend, then let me be the first to tell you that once you are put on to Tajín, your life won’t be the same. I’m only slightly kidding, but it really is so good!
If you’ve never tried Tajin, then my friends, you are missing out. Tajin is a chili-lime seasoning that is more flavorful than it is spicy. Yet, it adds the perfect amount of spice to kick up any dish.
Tajin is a dried seasoning that consists of a blend of Mexican chili peppers (árbol, guajillo and pasillachilies, to be exact), along with dried lime and sea salt. It originated in Jalisco, Mexico, but has quickly rose in popularity here in the USA because of how good it tastes on everything!
Traditionally, you can find Tajin used on dishes like Elote (aka grilled corn on the cob that is slathered with mayo, Tajin, and cotija cheese) or on fresh mango slices, aka Mango con Chile or Mangonada.
But really, Tajin is great on anything, from fresh fruit to more savory dishes like chicken or steak tacos!
And if you’re looking for more ways to use your bottle of Tajín, I highly recommend trying my Frozen Tajín Grapes for something more sweet, or my Mayo-Free Mexican Street Corn Tostadas or Buffalo Corn Rib for something more savory with a kick!

Once you see how simple and easy it is to make these Sweet & Sour Tajín Peaches and Strawberries, you won’t want to eat your fruit any other way!
Simply start by chopping your peaches and strawberries and add them to a large bowl. You can keep the skin on your peaches, or remove it – whatever you prefer!
Next, squeeze your lemon juice over the fruit, so that all of the fruit is coated in the juice.
Finally, add in the monk fruit sweetener and Tajín, and toss until the fruit is fully incorporated in it. Serve immediately, or store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Enjoy!
