Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Makes 8 servings.


    Cilantro-Lime Chimichurri:
    · 1 cup packed cilantro leaves
    · 1/3 cup olive oil
    · 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    · 3 cloves garlic
    · 1 teaspoon salt
    · 1 teaspoon McCormick® Thyme Leaves
    · 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Crushed Red Pepper

    · 2 pounds small red potatoes, pierced with fork
    · 2 bell peppers, each cut into 6 strips
    · 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided


1.  For the Cilantro-Lime Chimichurri Sauce, place all ingredients in food processor; cover. Process until cilantro is coarsely chopped. Set aside in medium bowl.

2.  Microwave potatoes 7 minutes on HIGH or until tender, turning halfway through cooking time. Let stand 2 minutes. Cut potatoes in half or quarter if large. Toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil.

3. Grill potatoes over medium heat 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and grill marks appear. Toss bell peppers with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Grill over medium heat 6 minutes or until tender-crisp, turning occasionally. Cut bell peppers into 1-inch pieces. Add potatoes and bell peppers to Chimichurri Sauce; toss gently until well coated.
