Spicy Chili Peanut Sauce
For the most part my house is a peanut free place, since I find my husband functions best when not dealing with an allergic reaction. However this move has us spending work days apart while I wrap things up in NoVa, and he starts his new position in Maryland. Needless to say I have gone a bit peanut crazy, to include eating peanut butter straight out of the jar. The other week I was doing a basic stir-fry when I decided to add some peanut butter to the dish, to see what would happen. The result was incredible so I decided I had to replicate it and figure out how to get the perfect balance between the spicy chili and the delicious peanut butter.
The first time I made this dish I wasn’t sure how things were going to go, but learned once again that randomly experimenting with ingredients can produce spectacular results. One tip, if using creamy peanut butter make sure to add some fresh peanuts to the dish in order to keep the satisfying crunch! I’m sending this over to 52weeksofcooking for their nuts week, which I’m thankful fell during the time when my hubby was out of the house 🙂
