If you’ve ever been to Mexico, or Downtown LA, you know what I’m talking about! These spicy-tangy snacks are so refreshing and absolutely picture perfect on a hot day!
In Mexico street vendors sell these cucumber snacks. They also make similar treats with corn, mango, and papaya. They sell them to you in plastic beer cups!
They are so simple to make which is great for when you have a one-track mind focused on getting outside. Cucumbers are hydrating and the sea salt and lime will replenish your mineral needs after sweating.
Here’s what you need:
2 large cucumbers
1 tablespoon of New Mexico chili powder blend (the one to use for this recipe is a brighter orange color. Mountain Rose Herbs makes a great blend you can buy it here)
1 teaspoon of course sea salt (buy it here)
1/4 cup lime juice
Don’t forget to buy organic!
Here’s what you do:
1. Chop the ends of the cucumber off
2. Slice in half long ways. Then slice in quarters. Then slice the quarters in half long ways
3. Pour lime juice over the cuc slices. Toss.
4. Sprinkle with salt and chili powder.
Sip with your favorite beverage outside and you have yourself a mini Mexican staycation!
