Roasted Cauliflower with Chipotle and Lime

Roasted-Cauliflower-with-Chipolte-and-LimeThis Roasted Cauliflower with Chipotle and Lime recipe is a must-have if you are a fan of chipotle, even if you don’t really like cauliflower.

Because I don’t.

I mean that I don’t jump up and down in joy over it like I do kale, or squash, spinach or avocados.

But I will eat it if it has a good flavor to it and you just can’t go wrong with the chipotle-lime combination.

Tip #1:  I’ve used both frozen and fresh cauliflower and although frozen works, the fresh seems to come out better.

Tip #2:  I like chipotle ~alot~ so if you don’t like too much spicy, just use less chipotle than what I show in the recipe because it will be hot.

    Hi, Karielyn. Thanks for trying the recipe with your own spin on it. I love chipotle chiles and have a recipe for pickled chipotle chiles that is out of this world. I would imagine the chipotles would add a nice smokey kick to the dish. The chile blend I use for this dish actually has some chipotle but 5 other chiles as well. Each chile has its own flavor profile and the blend really adds depth of flavor to the dish. I love your photo. It’s very whimsical but enticing.

      Hi Rem! I am so glad you posted the original recipe because you have a non-cauliflower lover actually craving cauliflower almost everyday now lol!

      One day when I’m not being lazy I will try your chili blend because I love chili peppers and I know it would make the dish even more irresistible.

      I saw your picture of the roasted cauliflower and wanted to eat them so bad I just used what I had on hand at the time….couldn’t even wait for the next grocery trip ;)

      Thanks again, I really love the recipe ;)
