  1. Saute the garlic, jalapeno, and shallot in a medium-sized pan over medium heat with a little EVOO until tender (about 3-4 minutes)

  4. Sprinkle with lime juice, stir once more, and transfer to a serving plate

"Taylor" It!
  1. Chipotle in adobo is canned and can be found in the Hispanic food section of just about any grocery store. I transfer it from the can to a small plastic container that lives in my freezer. It's super easy to slice off a chunk any time it's needed in a recipe and then none of it goes to waste!
I LOVE to cook, bake, and entertain for friends and family for two reasons: 1) I LOOOOOOVE food!! 2) I am a people-pleaser. I get my joy and warm, fuzzy feelings by making others feel loved and taken care of. What better way to do that than with a delicious, home-cooked meal?!
