Need some oil-free chips to dip with? Make these Oil-Free Baked Chili Lime Tortilla Chips for a perfect pairing! They only take about 10-15 minutes to make and are super crunchy!

Tip: Different tortilla brands take longer to cook. If they aren’t crispy after 10 minutes, flip and then bake for 3-5 minutes more until desired crispness. Before storing the chips make sure they are fully cooled so they don’t get soft.

I also like Mary’s Gone Crackers, found in most grocery stores. They are made with seeds and are one of the few oil-free crackers I’ve seen.

However, feel free to skip the chips though; you’d be forgiven for eating it with a spoon!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Finely dice the watermelon, tomatoes, and cucumber so that all the pieces are approximately the size of peas. Place everything in a large bowl.
  • Juice the lemon directly into the mixing bowl and add the scallions, garlic, jalapeño, cumin, cayenne, and salt, to taste (if using.) Stir well to combine.
  • Serve right away or store in the fridge, covered, for up to 4 hours.

Notes

Serving suggestion: Tortilla chips are the classic pairing, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying more creative complements. Pita chips, potato chips, or veggie chips are a few additional great ideas. You can use it as a condiment on top of plant-based burgers, tacos, burrito bowls, and more.
Notes: Transform this salsa into a salad by cutting the produce into larger pieces. Add fresh arugula, spinach, or chopped romaine to give it more volume, and cooked chickpeas or baked tofu for protein to make it a complete meal.
