Flavor of the Week: Chile Lime

Flavor combo gains traction on American menus

This flavor combination seems simple, but it’s the simplicity that makes chile lime a growing flavor on menus and appealing to a variety of consumers.

These quintessential flavors found throughout Latin America are not unfamiliar with American consumers, but the spicy sour combination has been gaining traction on menus in the last four years.

Chile lime is most popularly paired with lighter proteins like chicken and seafood, and as a dressing with salads to add a hit of heat with a pop of bright citrus.
