Do you have a “go-to” spice in your kitchen?
I have a number of MORSELICIOUS spices I always have on hand, but I think my favorite, or at least in my top-3, is CHIPOTLE, a perfect blend of spicy and sweet.
Chipotle peppers are dried, smoked jalapeno peppers. Their smoky-sweet flavor compliments many of my MORSELICIOUS recipes, including my Spicy Mojo, which you really should try, if you haven’t already. 🙂 Ask me for the recipe or search here in my previous posts.
I seriously think I would go through with-drawls if I ran out of my chipotle powder 🙂
First, I’d like to hear from you what your top 3 favorite spices are and let’s swap/share recipes. If you’d like, I can even MORSELFY some of yours for you.
In the meantime, here’s a simple-staple/spicy-sweet-side (say that 3 times quickly), I make at least twice a week, as featured on Vitacost.com and kids love them, too!
