Sweet Chili Lime Chicken Burgers

We just spent an awesome 10 days in Costa Rica. But now I'm back...just in time for better weather and backyard barbecues! We always have people with a variety of eating preferences & palates attending our BBQ's. In response, I've always had fun experimenting with flavors and making new burgers for our get-togethers. This time I want to share one that was tried and tested with our family recently and is sure to be a hit at your summer BBQ's. This juicy chicken burger has just the right amount of sweet chili lime kick that plays off the herby green onions and cilantro, topped with pickled red onions on a sesame seed bun.

Spicy Potato Fry

Wednesday (3/22) was Telugu New Year also known as Ugadi. It is usually celebrated with the reading of the New Years' almanac and traditional foods. You can read more about our previous years celebrations here: 201420152016201820192020, 2021, 2022 .

This year we celebrated Ugadi on the following Saturday with a table full of friends! We had Mango Rice, Carrot & Cucumber Curd Salad, Tomato Rasam, Spinach Coconut Dal, Potato Fry, Papadums, Tamarind Chutney, Onion Pakora, Paneer Vada, Paneer & Peas in Spiced Tomato Sauce, a spread of Indian Sweets and of course a little Ugadi Pachadi.
This year, since we had an abundance of potatoes from St. Patrick's Day, it seemed fitting to finally add the recipe for Potato Fry that is ubiquitous at our table. This tasty toasted potato side dish has just the right amount of savory spices and crunch that compliment almost every meal.

Here's my recipe for Spicy Potato Fry:
