Spicy Watermelon Salsa
This is a spicy-sweet salsa that starts off cool and ends in heat. It's hot, but very refreshing. I keep the seeds in the peppers for maximum heat. This was a prize-winning recipe at our neighbor's classic Cinco de Mayo party.

- 6cups cubed watermelon, divided
- 1serrano chile pepper
- ½cup salsa verde (such as Herdez®)

Step 1Place 3 cups watermelon and 1 whole serrano chile pepper in a blender; blend on the liquefy setting until sauce is smooth.
Step 2Mix remaining 3 cups watermelon, salsa verde, minced serrano chile pepper, and taco seasoning together in a bowl. Pour watermelon sauce over watermelon mixture; toss to coat. Season salsa with salt.
