Watermelon Chipotle Gazpacho


Have you ever tried making a soup from watermelon? It was never on our list of things to do, however now that we've tried it we are fans. We recommend using a Vitamix if you have one, it will make the soup super smooth. Use a food processor for a thicker soup.




Watermelon Chipotle Gazpacho

Ingredients



  • Either half a large watermelon or one medium watermelon (at least 12 cups)
  • About 6 large tomatoes
  • 2-3 green onions
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 10 cloves of garlic
  • 2 red Bell peppers
  • 1 ear of corn
  • Frank's Red Hot Sauce

  • Chop the watermelon, tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, and cucumber and put into large mixing bowls
  • In a frying pan saute 2 red bell peppers and about 10 cloves of garlic, add to mixing bowls

  • Have a large stock pot ready. 
  • In smaller manageable sections blend ingredients Vitamix, starting at level 1 and working up to 10.
