Love to snack on fresh watermelon? 🍉
Watermelon is one of my favorite healthy summer snacks, especially when it gets really warm outside. Today, I’m sharing a fun and easy snack: chili lime watermelon fries!
All you do is toss watermelon with chili powder and lime for a sweet, sour, and spicy treat. It may seem odd at first, but trust me – it’s a delicious savory, and sweet combination!
I’ve had similar chili lime mangos (popular in Mexico) served on a stick. It’s delicious, so I knew I’d love this, too! Plus serving watermelon dippers in the shape of a french fry is a fun idea in itself.
Here are a few recipe tips to keep in mind when making Chile Lime Watermelon Fries:
- For the lime taste, I had a shaker bottle of True lime crystalized lime, and it works out perfectly for this idea. It comes in handy to season sauces, rice, and meat for grilling too. Of course, you can alternatively use fresh lime juice and zest instead.
- Customize your desired amount of chili powder and add more if you like it spicier. My kids were eating this snack so I didn’t add much, but I may add more next time for myself!
- Reduce the number of ingredients by using this seasoning blend. Tajín is a popular chile-lime seasoning, so you get the 2 flavors in one bottle!
- For a refreshing dipping sauce, add honey and chili powder to some lime-flavored yogurt. It’s yummy, creamy, and kids love it for dipping fruits and veggies!
