Just when you thought the ripe, sweet taste of watermelon couldn’t get any better, it does. All it needs is a little help from the spice cabinet, with a dusting of Tajín seasoning.

Why This Upgrade Makes Watermelon More Fun

If you haven’t experienced Tajín seasoning, grab a slice of watermelon because it’s the best way to get acquainted with it. A classic Mexican seasoning that combines chili powder, salt, and dehydrated lime juice, this bright blend will invigorate all your senses when sprinkled over watermelon. It makes the fruit’s natural sweetness pop, and also surprises your tastebuds with salty, sour, and spicy notes.

How to Make It

Cut watermelon into wedges and sprinkle Tajín seasoning over the top of each piece.
