Try some delicious coco con chile y limon (coconut with chile and lime juice)! It’s a super tasty snack. It has a slightly sweet flavor that goes perfectly with lime juice and chili powder.
If you love coconut you’ll have to try coconut horchata next.
So today’s recipe is something my husband whipped up for us.
It’s super simple but I still thought it was worth sharing.
If you’re into coconut flavored drinks and treats I think you’ll really enjoy this treat.
Though most coconut flavored foods tend to be very sugary.
Fresh coconut meat isn’t very sweet.
It’s only slightly sweet.
Cracking open a coconut isn’t as difficult as you may think.
Alphafoodie explains four methods you can use to open a coconut.
Once the coconut is cracked open use a spoon or knife to remove the meat from the shell.
Then use a potato peeler to peel off the skin.
After that cut the coconut meat into strips then sprinkle it with the chili powder (I use Tajin) and squeeze lime juice over top.
This is a really delicious treat that we enjoy and I hope you do too.
And it’s pretty easy to make once you learn how to open the coconut.
