Watermelon + Chili Powder = Wild Watermelon Love


Take some of these.

And add some of this: 

It’s like a party for your taste buds!

The sweet, juicy melon is a stark contrast to the spicy chili powder.  Super delicious.

Use any kind of chili powder you like.  Chipotle powder is smokey and slightly sweet; a great compliment to the watermelon, but it’s also pretty hot.  The regular variety of chili powder is milder, but still offers the flavor kick.

So brush aside the salt shaker and grab the nearest chili powder.  Wild Watermelon is better!

    • Years ago we visited San Antonio, Texas. A street vendor was selling large, plastic glasses full of cut up watermelon, cantalope and grapes inside. They were sprinkled with chili powder, and that was the most refreshing, delicious treat I had ever discovered! I would never have thought-up such a combination….and I don’t exclude the salt. Altogether, it continues to be a favorite summer delight!
