You can also use any combination of cut up fruits like strawberry’s, watermelon, grapes, pineapple, oranges, bananas you name it. Squeeze a bit of lime juice all over and a teaspoon of sugar if needed.
Now for a real refreshing twist, sprinkle some Gebhardt chile powder over the fruit and stir. The flavor is great.
We will be having this as part of our traditional dinner on Christmas eve. Did I mention we were having Chicken enchiladas, homemade chile rellenos, refried beans and spanish rice? I can’t wait.
