These two ingredients make an unlikely, but absolutely terrific, pair! We love the burning heat of those chili peppers followed by a refreshing blast of lime juice. It's perfect in salsas and light dishes on hot late-summer evenings. Do you have a dish that combines chili peppers and limes? We often see these ingredients together in dishes with origins in India, Thailand, and other East Asian cuisines. Here are a few of the chili-lime recipes from our archives: • Cucumber Ice Pops with Lime and ChileKachumber Coolers with gin, fresh slices of chili, and lime juice • 30-Minute Chicken Posole And a few others we've come across recently from around the web: • The Perfect Guacamole from Simply Recipes • Vietnamese Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with Spicy Lime Dipping Sauce from Sunset Magazine • Spicy Lime and Chicken Laksa from Whole Foods • Thai Beef Salad with Cilantro, Mint, Lime, and Peanuts from the 20 Minute Supper Club What other recipes do you like with chilis and limes?
