Something I mentioned at Kelli's is that I am looking for ways to eat healthier...for me. I do a great job of
But me? Well, that is a whole different ballgame....
Something that always makes fresh vegetables a little more delicious is a great dip. My sister found the recipe for Red Pepper Chipotle Lime Sauce on the Skinny Taste site and made some for our beach trip last month. It was so delicious that I had to try it for myself when we got home!
Red Pepper Chipotle Lime Sauce
from Skinny Taste
- 1 Tablespoon Roasted Red Peppers (jarred)
- 1/4 cup Light Mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon minced canned chipotle chilies in adobe sauce
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
In a blender (or Magic Bullet) puree the mayo, lime juice, roasted red peppers, and chilies. Chill until ready to serve.
Note: Following my sister's advice, I used regular mayo (that was what I had on hand) and cut it with some fat free sour cream. I don't own a Magic Bullet, so I used my blender to mince up the chilies. The mixture took a few minutes to blend all the way because the mayo really needs to be mixed it.
I served my sauce with my sister's recipe for Baked Zucchini Bites, which I am sharing over at Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM today. If you want a recipe that will knock your socks off, try it. The sauce is also great as a dip, or as a spread over baked chicken/fish. It has a nice spicy taste without being too hot or overwhelming your taste buds.
This was a delicious meal: baked chicken with sauce, baked zucchini bites, rosemary bread, and a side salad!
I hope you'll round up some of your favorite meals...I'm going to post about a little Family Friendly Meal series I'm hoping to host for a few days in September. We'll be talking about meal planning and recipes...and I hope you'll be a part of it. Check back next week for some more details!
