Orange with Tajín. Chile Powder.
Orange with Chile Powder – Tajiín “Fruit Seasoning”

Feels like -22 C and is insane to walk around, at least is sunny and bright, but… I miss the warm/hot weather, I start getting a bit desperate and I love to torture myself thinking about Mexican weather, and when I think about Mexican weather it brings me memories about one of my favourites Mexican Street Snacks: FRUIT WITH CHILE POWDER AND LIME – FRUTA CON CHILE Y LIMON.

I remember buying Fruit with Chilli and Lime almost everyday after school and if I had some extra coins I will bring my mom her favourite one: Coconut (you must to try coconut with chilli and lime) I don’t have a favourite one, but most of the time I go for Cucumber, Oranges Watermelon and  Jicama. (Too bad I can’t find Jicama any where in Montreal, if you know where to find it in Montreal, please tell me!)

The most common fruits we see on the Fruit Shopping Carts: are: Mango, Oranges, Cucumber, Pineapple, Jicama, Watermelon, Mango, Shredded Carrots, Coconut, Tuna (cactus) and Strawberries.

When buying Fruit from Street Vendors, Make sure the shopping cart is clean, not like the one on the picture.

I always like the idea to buy fruit on the go, it is an easy snack to eat while walking and on top of that is a healthy Snack!! Nothing is wrong with a slide of pineapple or watermelon, right? The good thing is we can buy fruits any time at the super market and do this yummy Mexican street snack.

I don’t review products or recommended them, but this one is a MUST try; if you enjoy sour, spicy and sweet snacks, this is the right thing to buy and add it to almost everything! Its call TAJÍN is Fruit Seasoning with Chile Powder, lime and salt, Tajin is one of the most popular chilli powders in Mexico; luckily I can find TAJÍN in Montreal ;-)
