Chipotle Tahini – Pinch of Yum

Oh hey! Just me again, sitting here with my bowl of silky smooth chipotle tahini, pouring it all over everything.

Do you remember chipotle tahini from a few months ago? Yeah, THAT chipotle tahini.

Let’s revisit it for just a second.

It is a 5-ingredient magic trick: olive oil and tahini make that impossibly creamy base, garlic and chipotles make it taste good, and a little bit of orange juice seals the deal with a little bit of sunshiney-ness.

Put the whole gang in there:

And out comes chipotle tahini:

What you could put this on is anyone’s guess.

But I would suggest any and all of the following:

  • roasted potatoes
  • grilled chicken
  • grilled shrimp
  • green salads
  • cold salads
  • hardboiled eggs
  • flatbread
  • grain bowls
  • raw vegetable dippers
  • French fries just sayin

It’s slightly thick, slightly sweet, smokey, and has that rich, semi-fancy tahini flavor to make you feel all grown up about your life.
