This easy Spicy Watermelon Gazpacho with Jalapeño Recipe is a refreshing, cold summer soup where you can “bring on the heat” with lots of jalapeño!



*4 cups red watermelon, cut into large chunks

*1 seedless cucumber, cut in large chunks

*1 large tomato, diced

*1 red  pepper, diced

1 shallot, diced

1 garlic clove, minced

*1 handful fresh basil

*1 handful fresh mint

1/21 whole jalapeño, minced

2 teaspoons salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 green onions, chopped

1 avocado, cubed


  1. Prep all of the above ingredients. 
  2. Stir & set aside the * ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Place all of the other ingredients in a food processor: watermelon, cucumber, tomato, red pepper, garlic, basil, mint, salt & pepper, jalapeño.
  4. Pulse until blended but still chunky.
  5. Pour into a bowl. Stir in olive oil & apple cider vinegar. Adjust salt & pepper to taste. Refrigerate until chilled for 1 hour or  more.
  6. Serve in separate bowls, each with toppings added. Enjoy!


*Set aside a small amount these ingredients to be, adding the avocado & green onions to be mixed for gazpacho toppings

**It can be served immediately but I prefer to chill Spicy Watermelon Gazpacho in the refrigerator for 1 hour or more. This also allows the flavors to mesh together a little longer.
