This Spicy Watermelon is very similar to the spicy watermelon cups I purchase at my local Flea Market. I enjoy having during the summer months. The salt & heat really bring out the sweetness of the watermelon. And this recipe saves me buckets of money since my local flea Market sells their cups for 5 bucks a piece. Thanks for the recipe.

Sorry we didn't care for this. I'm a huge fan of chili lime (Tajin seasoning) on fruit - mango pineapple melon - it's one of my favorite snacks so I thought for sure I'd like this. The cumin was overpowering and the combination of lime with the spices gave everything a bitter flavor. I tried the next bowl without lime and that was better. A sprinkle of salt improved it. If I make this again I'd definitely leave out the cumin and possible the coriander too. Read More

Just took this to a 4th of July party. It was very well received. It does have a bit of a kick to it at the end. I would recommend it to folks but I would also recommend to add less spice than called for if you do not like food with too much heat. Read More

Tried it but also used other fruits as that is how I used to buy it in Nogales AZ. Besides watermelon try papaya strawberries cantaloupe mango raspberries and jicama. Try other chili powders and use key limes. Read More
