My favorite treat - Cucumbers with Lemon and Chile

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Comfort food for Latinas
Before you get your chonies in a twist, this can be comforting to anyone...its just not a shocker or something new in the Latin culture. When I was away from home...and all alone...this was one dish that would make me feel all warm inside. Maybe I was warm because the chile made my mouth burn haha.
Pepino con lemon y chile
(Cucumber with lemon and chile)
You will need the following:
Cucumbers
lemon/lime
Chile powder / & Liquid Chile
Cut up the cucumbers to the size that you like, and place in a blow.
Then use your muscles or a fruit hand juicer.
Add chile and toss. Repeat.
I like a lot of chile so I make sure that each bite will have powder on them.
Then I drizzle a little bit...okay a lot a bit of the liquid chile over the pile of goodness.
ENJOY!!
I have tweeted this spicy treat a few times and some people wanted to know how to make it. Its so simple. Now if you are not a fan of cucumber I recommend:
Watermelon
Apples
Pineapple
Mango
Jicama
I love lemon and chile period. Amen I have a tree in the backyard :)

Natalie Ferrara said...

You probably have, but have you ever tried tajin? It's a spice...I think mexican spice thats really good on fruit, cucumbers, etc. My family's Italian, but we're obsessed with it!
