Spice is nice. But to really add bite to your burrito, check out chipotle powder! Just a touch of this fiery favorite—made from ground, roasted jalapeno peppers—gives new meaning to the word mouthwatering. Stir some into this fresh, homemade hot sauce for a kicked up taco topping, daring dip or spicy soup seasoning. The smooth, chunk-less texture comes from a quick whirl in the blender after ingredients are sautéed on the stovetop.
Break the bland salad habit with a dressing that makes your mouth (and your eyes!) water. You’ll whisk together organic extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar and Dijon mustard for a zesty vinaigrette base, then add garlic and herbs for fresh flavor. A dash of chipotle or ancho chile is where the kick comes in—just a bit is all that’s needed for a love-it, want-more burn! Double or triple the batch and keep this dressing in a sealed jar in your fridge for up to a week.
Before you spoon a hefty heap of regular peanut butter into your blender, take a look at how many fat grams you’re packing into that “healthy” smoothie. Two tablespoons will set you back nearly 16 grams—not to mention 200 calories. To keep that peanutty taste without bulking up your beverage, try PBSLIM™, a powdered peanut butter made from real, roasted, non-GMO peanuts that have been pressed to remove 85% of fat calories. In this spicy drink, you’ll mix it with almond milk, protein-packed chia seeds, fiber-rich buckwheat groats and fiery chipotle powder for a filling and eye-opening breakfast.
Who doesn’t love a mid-week Mexican fiesta? Make yours vegan and gluten free with this creative quesadilla, stuffed with sautéed veggies, dairy-free “cheese” and brown rice (not whole wheat!) tortillas. Don’t worry about deep-frying dangers, either. This festive favorite is lightly browned in heart-friendly olive oil for the perfect crispy coating to all the veggielicious goodness inside.
Peanut butter lovers: brace yourselves! Inside these crispy corn tortillas is a thick layer of your favorite spread, warmed for irresistible, gooey creaminess and spiced just slightly with chipotle powder to complement the nutty flavor. Serve with sliced bananas for lunch, or get creative with toppings for a truly different dessert!
Spice up ordinary taco nights with a twist on everyone’s favorite Mexican dish. This enchilada casserole is meat free but full of authentic flavor—with corn tortillas, sautéed veggies, black beans and vegan cheese, layered and baked to bubbly perfection. Sprinkle with pepitas and hemp seeds for a protein boost!
