Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blanch asparagus in boiling water about 2 minutes.
  2. Immediately drain and put asparagus in ice water to stop cooking.
  3. This will help keep a slight crunch to the asparagus and keep it bright.
  4. Dry asparagus thoroughly with paper towels.
  5. Use a little of the reduced fat mayonnaise to coat each asparagus spear, then roll in panko breadcrumbs.
  6. You can refrigerate at this point if needed.
  7. Mix mayonnaise and chipotle together with a whisk or in blender.
  8. Use 1-2 depending on how spicy you like it.
  9. Heat about 1 inch of oil heat to 370 F in a frying pan, put in asparagus but don't crowd.
  10. Turn to brown on all sides.
  11. Drop some dip into the bottom of a champagne flute, add 3-5 asparagus and serve.
