I just love these - they pretty much taste exactly like the cucumber-chili paletas I buy at Mexican grocery stores. Maybe they're a bit sweeter, so I might cut the amount of sugar in half. Really, that's more of a personal preference. I also used lime juice instead of lemon juice.

These are mighty fantastic and make me think it could be turned to great frozen margaritas.
