CHA-CHA LIMA SUGAR

from 7.00

ORGANIC SUGAR, LIME & GROUND CHIPOTLE PEPPERS

Get your cha-cha on with this sweet, spicy, citrusy finishing sugar. Use on baked goods, fruit salad, grilled pineapple, peaches, sweet potatoes, corn, and of course, margaritas. Cha-cha Lima is VERY sticky and tends to clump; since we use no preservatives or desiccants, we recommend keeping it in the fridge with the lid on tight.

  • Cocktails
  • Baking
  • Fruit & fruit salads
  • Marinades
  • Shrimp, fish, beef

CHA-CHARITA: Dust the rim of your margarita glass with Cha-cha Lima.

CHA-CHA CHEX MIX: This sauce works as a dressing or marinade, too.

  • 4 cups Chex
  • 2 cups pretzels
  • 1 cup nuts (you can throw anything you like, really)
  • 4 tbsp butter (if you're making a dressing or a marinade, substitute a neutral oil)
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 tbsp Cha-cha Lima Sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame oil if you want
  • Sriracha if you like it on fire

Mix the crunchy stuff in a big bowl. Put the butter/oil, soy sauce, Cha-cha Lima, and sesame oil in a glass measuring cup and nuke on high 1 minute. Stir, pour it over the crunchy stuff, toss. To crisp it up, you can nuke it for 2 minutes, stir, nuke again for another 2 minutes, then spread it out and dry it on paper towels. Or you can bake it on cookie sheets at 300 for about 10 minutes, then air dry it.

CHA-CHA KABOBS:

  • 2 lbs meat or shrimp
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 tbsp Cha-cha Lima Sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame oil if you want
  • Sriracha if you like it on fire

Put the oil, soy sauce, Cha-cha Lima, and sesame oil/Sriracha in a glass measuring cup and nuke on high 1 minute. Stir, Marinate the meat for 1 hr. Skewer w/ veggies + grill = partay.

CHA-CHA VOLCANO CHOCOLATE CAKE: We love Food and Wine's recipe for molten chocolate cake, but instead of 1/4 sugar, we use 3 tbsp sugar + 1 tbsp Cha-Cha Lima. Is it hot in here or is it you, you sexy beast?

CHA-CHA SOPAIPILLA: Sarah gave us this idea for the perfect snack.Fry a tortilla in butter or oil and sprinkle with Cha-cha Lima. Sweet and sassy!

IOWA CHA-CHA SWEET TATERS: This one's from Bonnie in Ames. Mix half Cha-cha Lima and half Iowa Nice Spice. Add in some more chipotle powder or chili powder if you like heat. Melt some butter, toss sliced sweet potatoes in the butter/spice mix and roast them in a casserole dish for 50 mins at 375.

SPICY CHA-CHA CHOCOLATE COOKIES: Make some chocolate cookie dough. If you'd rather die that do that, just buy a tube of it. Our fave: Ames' own Doughbiz. Roll the balls of dough in Cha-cha Lima TWICE before you put them in the oven. Do it once, wait for the sugar to melt in, then roll 'em again. You may want to drink a margarita with Cha-cha Lima while you're doing this. The end result: a spicy, crowd-wowing cookie that everyone will rave about. And you'll be like, "I stayed up 'til 3 a.m. doing this [which will be a lie], because I RULE!" [Wild applause. They put a crown on your head. Curtain down].
