Whole Foods may be a horribly pretentious company with the strict rules they apply to the products they allow in stores, but they do carry a fantastic array of meats, seafood, cheeses, produce, and specialty items. (I will never pay such outrageous prices for dry goods I could get for less than half the price at WalMart....) While we were waiting for our fish, I happened to look down and see the specialty seasoning blends that are bulk packaged in-house. Even though it was labeled "Tequila Lime," it was easy to tell that chili powder is a main ingredient. It had to be close to my mom's beloved chili lime. The very nice and extremely helpful fishmonger gave me a 1.5 oz. sample of it for free. We used it to season our turkey burgers a few nights later and it was delicious.
The basic ingredients of this seasoning are salt, chili powder, cilantro, lime zest, garlic powder, and onion powder. It is a universal blend that would honestly be good on just about anything from steak to rice. Oh, and did I mention it is cheap? Seriously, a Whole Foods product that is CHEAP! You get 6 oz. for $2.99. A decent seasoning salt or blend from the spice aisle is going to run you about $3.50 for 3-4 oz. This blend is an absolute bargain!
Tip:Because we used this in turkey burgers, I thought I'd give you a tip on how to keep your all-white meat ground turkey from drying out. For every 1 lb of ground white meat turkey, grate in 1 medium sized carrot. It adds a lovely hint of sweetness while keeping the meat moist and juicy.
