My favorite treat – Cucumbers with Lemon and Chile

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 🙂
