The Ultimate Taco Seasoning

While this rub is versatile enough to use on just about anything, it really shines as a taco seasoning. The combination of chilis and lime creates a flavor that goes perfectly with beef, chicken, pork, or even fish tacos. It’s not just for tacos, though. This rub is just as amazing on fajitas, in chili, or sprinkled over a bowl of beans. Here are a few of my favorite ways to use Fiesta Rub:

How to Use Fiesta Rub

Adding a burst of flavor to your dishes with this rub is a breeze. For meats, I recommend using about 1 tablespoon of rub per pound. Sprinkle it generously over your protein before grilling or smoking. For best results, let the seasoning sit on the meat for at least 30 minutes before cooking to allow the flavors to penetrate.

But don’t stop at meat. This rub is great for jazzing up vegetables, sprinkling over corn on the cob, or even mixing into dips and salsas for an extra kick. Don’t be afraid to try new combinations and find what you love.

Beyond Tacos: Unexpected Uses

While this rub is the ultimate taco seasoning, its uses extend far beyond that. This versatile blend can add a south-of-the-border feel to all sorts of dishes. Try sprinkling it over popcorn for a zesty snack, use it to season roasted potatoes, or mix it into your next batch of guacamole. It’s also great for adding some zing to grilled shrimp or fish. Here are some of my favorite non-taco recipes featuring Fiesta Rub:

Pairing Suggestions

Fiesta Rub plays well with others, especially when it comes to my other Hey Grill Hey rubs and sauces. For a flavor combination that can’t be beat, try using Fiesta Rub as a base seasoning, then finish your dish with a sprinkle of my Sweet Rub. The contrast between the zesty Fiesta Rub and the sweet, smoky notes of the Sweet Rub creates a depth of flavor that’s tough to beat.

You can also use Fiesta Rub to add some Southwestern punch to recipes that call for my other rubs. For instance, try mixing some Fiesta Rub into my Skillet Potatoes for a spicy twist on this classic side dish.
