  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with foil.
  • Cut potatoes into ¼ inch sticks. Place potato sticks on a prepared baking sheet and toss with olive oil, salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer and bake in a hot oven until lightly browned, 20 minutes, carefully tossing fries halfway through.
  • Core tomato and cut into small cubes. Peel and mince shallot. Zest lime, halve, and juice: mince cilantro, leaves, and stems. In a mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise and half the chipotle powder. Set aside.
  • Form ground beef into two patties, 5" in diameter. Season both sides with salt and a pinch of pepper.
  • Combine tomato, shallot, lime juice, half the cilantro salt, and a pinch of pepper in another mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • After fries have cooked 20 minutes, remove from oven and carefully toss again. Bake until golden brown, 18-20 minutes. Garnish baked fries with lime zest and remaining cilantro.
