Chile-Spiced Asparagus

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chile_spiced_asparagus.html

From EatingWell:  April/May 2006

Earthy chili powder 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.

4 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  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.
