Blueberry Chipotle again?  Last recipe with this flavor combination, I promise!  Really this series of recipes is about how you can use one recipe, in this case a blueberry chipotle marinade for fish tacos, and use it in a lot of different preparations. I used that one recipe to make a Blueberry Chipotle Dip, Blueberry Chipotle Fish Tacos and Blueberry Chipotle Coleslaw.  I can make all the recipes together for one dinner or make them separately.  This coleslaw would be fantastic with grilled chicken.

I love to multi-task and I love when a recipe can do the same.  Sometimes, it is just a matter of thinking outside the box.  It was my husband who tried the marinade and said “Oh yum, can I dip something in it?”  This would work for a lot of different recipes.  You could use a lot of different dip recipes as sauces for coleslaw.  You might need to thin them out a little but for example, I think Green Goddess Coleslaw sounds fantastic.  It would also make a fantastic marinade for fish or meat.  (I will be using that in the future, not sure how yet)

I love a saying by Chef Anne Burrell – “Be your own Cook”.  In other words, it’s OK to swap out ingredients or use a recipe for a way that it wasn’t necessarily intended.  I love to talk to people who love food and discuss recipes and brain storm on different ways to use a food or recipe.  It can make the best “surprise” meals and give you a new recipe.  One thing I almost always swap is parsley for cilantro.  I just adore cilantro but I know for some people it can taste like soap.  So they could easily swap out the cilantro in this recipe for Italian parsley or basil. I almost always cut the amount of oil in a recipe.  I might add a little more or less salt to a recipe to suit our taste buds.

Don’t be afraid to put your own spin on a recipe or make a tried and true recipe in a different way.  I hear so many people say they only know how to make a few things.  Use what you know and think about putting a spin on it.  Your spaghetti and meatballs can be made into a delicious tomato soup with meatballs.  Your award-winning Chili can transform into a pasta sauce or sloppy joes.  If you mix things up a little, you will probably enjoy cooking more.
