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. :)
