CHICAGO – Tyson Foods, Inc. has teamed up with Tajín to launch a line of new products featuring Tajín's Clásico Seasoning. Combining mild chili peppers, dehydrated lime juice and sea salt, Tajín’s spice blend lends its flavor to two new Tyson brand products and three new Hillshire Farm brand offerings.
“We know people are looking for more authentic, flavor-forward foods that tap into today's globalized palates,” said Alexa McKay, chef at Tyson Foods. “Our partnership with Tajín not only delivers on the growing interest in these flavor varieties but also means you don't have to make a trip to your favorite ethnic restaurant to enjoy them.”
Joining the Tyson brand are Tyson Tajín Chili Lime Chicken Nuggets and Tyson Any’tizers Tajín Chili Lime Boneless Chicken Bites. Both offerings are made with no-antibiotics-ever, all-white-meat chicken and provide 13 grams of protein per serving.
Tyson's Hillshire Farm brand is debuting three new products featuring the spicy seasoning: Tajín Chili Lime Smoked Sausage with Mango, Tajín Chili Lime Lit'l Smokies and Tajín Chili Lime Smoked Sausage. All three feature smoked sausage made with pork, chicken or turkey.
“Tajín brings a unique, flavorful chili-lime ‘zing’ that pairs perfectly with these products,” said Michelle Duran, a chef who led Tajín-flavored product development for the Hillshire Farm brand. “Now, consumers will have even more opportunities to spice up meals with our new flavorful sausage and chicken offerings.”
