Awesome tequila asparagus I made
I was making a southwester style dinner, but since one of the people eating is on a low carb diet, he could not eat the delicious corn, bean, and zucchini caserole. So I bought some aspargus for him. I wanted to stick with the southwest food style, so I decided to try something new and hope that it turned out well. Everyone thought the aspargus were delicious, so I thought I would share the recipe.
Jalapeno pepper (it is what I had on hand, but any spicy pepper would do)
oil (any neutral oil)
ancho chili pepper ( I had it out of the spice cabinet so used it, but I think
any kind would be delicious)
Trim the asparagus. Fine chop the jalapeno and garlic. Add the butter and oil into a saute pan over medium heat. Add the asparagus and the spices and seasoning. When the asparagus is 3/4 done cooking add the chopped garlic and jalapeno pepper. Just be careful not to cook the garlic too long, because it will turn bitter. When there is about one minute left till the asparagus are done add the tequila (off the flame) .
Sorry for not having exact ammounts of ingredients, but I was going on the fly and did not measure any ammounts. I am going to make this again trying it with different tequilas and different peppers, and who knows what else I might add. If anyone has any suggestions on what else might go good in this dish, I would love to know.
