Caesar salad is always good, whether served as an appetizer, entrée or side dish, and the recipe usually stays pretty much the same. However, in this recipe we are adding chipotle chilies, hot sauce and lime juice to the mix, infusing the salad with a touch of spice. As well as that, we are going to grill the romaine to char it, add a smoky flavor, and a whole new dimension.
