For those of you with a Trader Joe’s close by, you might be familiar with their Chili Chicken Lime Burgers that can be found in the freezer case.  Love them!  Until now…  Thanks to my new condiment crush, Robert Rothschild Farms’ Chili Lime Sauce, I’ve created my own recipe that’s just as easy to prepare as opening a box from the freezer.  An all-natural version that’s packed with flavor and ready for the dinner table in no time.

After a couple of months of colder weather, I start craving burgers.  You know, the kind piled mile high with toppings and fresh from the grill?  Nevermind that we have 3″ of new snow on the ground and I don’t know how to man a grill.  Not to worry, I’ve taken manners into my own capable hands as these burgers are baked!

Build your burger with your favorite toppings to make it one of a kind.  I placed my burger on a lettuce topped onion bun and topped it with slices of tomato, red pepper and red onion as well as a splash of Chili Lime Sauce.

Forgoing carbs?  This burger is also awesome in salad form on a bed of lettuce and using the toppings as salad fixings.  The Chili Lime Sauce makes an out of this world dressing.  Delicious!


I was compensated by Robert Rothschild Farm to create this recipe.  As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Robert Rothschild Farm’s Chili Lime Sauce is also available at Sam’s Club.


  1. This looks SO good. I love chicken and turkey burgers so this has to go on my must make list. Or actually, let’s be honest, my husband’s must make list :). Thanks for sharing!

  2. I need to try this. It looks so good!!! Next time I am at Sam’s Club, I will look for the lime sauce.
