Homemade Low Sodium Tajín Recipe

A clear glass bowl with Homemade Low Sodium Tajín and a stainless steel measuring spoon.

My version of the ubiquitous Mexican chile-lime powder with ancho and chipotle powder, crystallized lime powder, and a little less salt!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  1. Combine all ingredients thoroughly in a prep bowl.
  2. Use a funnel to store in an airtight container.
  3. Keeps indefinitely (I think!).


My recommendation is for a total of 4 tablespoons of red chile powder. You can choose your favorites and make it as hot or mild as you like! Cayenne is a good way to boot the heat if you like it extra hot.

I recommend the True Lime because it actually tastes like lime (not just sour). There are similar products out there that can probably get the job done.
