The seasoning on the Mexican fruit is a combination of Tajin chile lime seasoning and chamoy sauce.

Tajin is a popular brand of Mexican chile lime seasoning that’s widely available in the US. It’s made from a blend of chile powder, dehydrated lime juice and salt. It’s sold in many grocery stores nowadays, but if you’re not able to find it near you, you can easily order a bottle on Amazon here.

Chamoy is a thick sauce and condiment (similar to the consistency of honey or syrup) made from pickled fruit like apricots, plums or mangos mixed with spicy chiles and a salty brine. It’s the perfect mixture of sweet, sour salty and spicy and it pairs beautifully with sweet fruit! It’s popular and easy to find in Mexico, but it’s still gaining some ground here in the states.

You can find chamoy in most hispanic grocery stores near you as well as on Amazon here.
