Red, White & Blue Roasted Potatoes

Recipe c/o About.com

INGREDIENTS

1 lb. blue or purple potatoes

1 lb. red potatoes

1 lb. white potatoes

6 tbsp. vegetable oil

3 tbsp. key lime juice

3 tsp. sea salt

3 pinches of pepper

DIRECTIONS

Peel and quarter blue potatoes. Toss them with 3 tbsp. of vegetable oil, 1 tsp. lime juice, 1 tsp. sea salt and pepper to taste. Pour the blue potatoes* in a single layer onto a piece of heavy aluminum foil, and fold the foil to make a flat, sealed packet. The potatoes should form a single layer for even cooking. Quarter the red potatoes, but do not peel them. Peel and cut the white potatoes into similar sized pieces. Toss the potatoes with the rest of the oil, lime juice, 2 tsp. sea salt and pepper to taste. Fold the red and white potatoes into a similar foil packet.

Place the foil packets onto your home propane grill over medium to low heat, or place them off to the side and close your grill lid. Check the potatoes after 10 minutes by piercing with a fork. Remove them from heat when they are tender. Arrange on a platter and serve.

*The blue potatoes are roasted separately so their color does not stain the white potatoes.

 

Mexican Grilled Corn

Recipe c/o Cooking Channel

Serving Size: 4

INGREDIENTS

4 ears of corn

½ cup mayonnaise

1 ½ cup sour cream

¼ cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves

1 cup freshly grated Parmesan

1 lime, juiced

Red chili powder, to taste

2 limes cut into wedges, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

Remove the husks of the corn, but leave the core attached at the end so you have something to hold onto while eating. Grill the corn on a hot, residential propane grill until slightly charred. Turn corn so it’s cooked evenly all over. Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream and cilantro together. While the corn is still warm slather with the mayonnaise mix. Squeeze lime juice over the corn and shower with Parmesan. Season with chili powder and serve with extra lime wedges.
