Chile-Spiced Asparagus

Earthy chili combines with the sour-power of sherry vinegar to create a fine dressing for the grassy-green asparagus. For a smoky twist, try substituting smoked paprika for the chili powder.

Serves 4

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 15 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 bunches asparagus, tough ends trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder, or 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon sherry vinegar, or red-wine vinegar

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and water; cook, stirring often, 4 to 5 minutes. Add chili powder (or paprika), garlic powder and salt; cook until the asparagus is tender-crisp, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, add vinegar and stir to coat.
