Chipotle maple baby carrots

Chipotle maple baby carrots

This recipe was actually not planned at all.  I wanted to take some baby carrots to work.  I was happy just cooking them and eating as is.  But I went to the spice cabinet, and saw some chipotle powder and next to it some maple syrup.  Well, I put the two together and came up with this wonderful side.  I would suggest making a big batch, this stuff is addicting.  


1 lb. baby carrots, washed
3 tablespoons of maple syrup
1/2 to 1 tsp. chipotle powder
1/2 tsp. salt

In a medium saucepan, place your carrots and cover with just enough water. Set on stove over medium high heat.  Cover and bring to a boil. Add salt and Reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 10 minutes.  Or until carrots are cooked but still crispy in the middle.   Remove from heat and drain in a strainer.
Allow to sit for about 2 minutes to dry a bit. Put back into pan and add the maple syrup and chipotle powder.  Stir well, and place on low heat for about 5 minutes.  Stir and cover all the carrots. 
Serve right away as a side dish.  
Super easy, and so flavorful.  A sure addition to your meals. :)
