Oh hey, bonus weekend post! I just couldn’t wait until Monday to share this yumminess with you all.
This week in Minnesota has been so offbeat in the weather department. The mornings generally have been damp and cool, but by the afternoon it is right back to being sunny and warm-hot (like hot, but less sweltering). Dare I say these cooler mornings have been making me excited for the fall? Though by midday, I’m enraptured again by the summertime sunshine and warmth. So really, it’s been the best of both weather worlds. Well done, Minnesota.
What does this weather-talk have to do with a cilantro-lime chicken bake, you ask? Well, it’s a casserole, which is a quintessential fall dish for me. But it’s not as heavy and rich as many tend to be; instead, this one is lighter, with bright, bold flavors and an awesome, flavorful roasted tomato sauce a la Old El Paso. In other words, it’s a perfect meal for these offbeat, late-summer days.
