Jalapeno Lime Potato Chips

(originally made 3/2011)

We've had a few lovely days this week here in New Hampshire, and yesterday I was able to grill for the first time this season.    I've been pushing this recipe around the to-try pile for a few weeks, but while the burgers were doing their thing was the perfect time to throw it together.   

What I didn't count on was the wind-  I had to keep checking the grill to make sure it hadn't gone out and as a result, I didn't read the directions as thoroughly as I should have.   The end result was great though.

I only had Lay's regular chips, next time I would definitely use the wavy/ridged ones because it would "hold" more of the mixture.    I added all the juice and zest to the skillet, forgetting to reserve some for the end.    I cut the cumin back because I find it to be very strong.   

I got this from the Life's Ambrosia site, so much wonderful stuff there, follow the link at the end of the recipe to check it out   :)
