Ingredients

FRUIT MIX

  • 1 cup of pineapple diced.
  • 1 cup cucumber diced
  • 1 cup mango diced
  • 1 cup jicama diced
  • 1 ½ cup fresh orange juice

CHAMOY SAUCE* Makes ⅔ of a cup of sauce

  • ½ cup apricot jam
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh squeeze lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick Red Crush Pepper
  • ½ teaspoon McCormick Ancho Chile Pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt

SPICY SWEET AND SALTY POWDER Makes ¼ cup

  • ¼ cup of granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of Hot Mexican-Style Chili Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 4 drops McCormick Red food Coloring Optional**

Instructions

Fruit Gazpacho

  • Mix the pineapple, cucumber, mango, and jicama in a large bowl with the orange juice. Cover and place in the fridge to cool while you prepare the Chamoy Sauce and spicy seasoning powder.

Chamoy Sauce

  • In a small glass bowl, mix the apricot jam, lime juice, McCormick Red Crush Pepper, McCormick Ancho Chile Pepper, and salt. Set aside while you prepare the next seasoning.

Spicy Sweet and Salty Powder

  • Mix sugar, McCormick Hot Mexican Style Chile Powder, and salt. If using food coloring, add the drops after mixing the dry ingredients. Mix well and let it air dry for about 10 minutes.
  • Final step. Divide the fruit into cups with some of the orange juice. Pour some of the Chamoy Sauce and sprinkle with the Spicy Sweet and Salty Powder. Enjoy!

Notes

• 1 cup of pineapple is about ¼ of a regular size pineapple, 1 cup of cucumber compares to a medium sized cucumber, 1 cup of mango equals one mango, and 1 cup of jicama is about ½ of a medium sized jicama. I’m giving you this information to help you when buying the fruit.
• * The recipe for this Chamoy sauce is really delicious, and my son even loves it with chicken wings. If you’re someone that enjoys these types of flavors, I recommend that you double or quadruple the amount to have it handy in your fridge.
• **This seasoning powder is usually red in color when sold in small packages, you can choose not to use the food coloring, since the flavors of this recipe will not be affected if you do not use the food coloring.
