Chipotle Mozzarella Sticks prove that big, bold flavors can come in bite-sized packages.
Inspired by my husband who loves anything with cheese and that’s spicy, these baked Chipotle Mozzarella Sticks are an amped up mozzarella stick. Baked in a chipotle sauce, these Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks are perfect as a game day appetizer, fun after school snack or even as an easy meal. Made with chipotle peppers, lime juice and fresh cilantro, this chipotle sauce compliments the breaded cheese sticks.
My kids love mozzarella sticks and could eat them every day. We prefer the Farm Rich brand as they are made with 100% real mozzarella cheese! Found at my local grocery store, their products are made for real life, offering tips/hacks, recipes, and great tasting food that helps simplify everyday life, and that’s exactly what A Dash of Sanity is about. And while the kids could go for the Mozzarella Sticks straight from the box, my hubby and I love to mix things up. We are a saucy kind of people. So adding my chipotle sauce to these mozzarella sticks was an instant winner for us both. Not only are these completely tasty, but simple to make.
Step up your appetizer and snack game with these Chipotle Mozzarella Sticks. You’ll rack up another win with your cheese & spice lovers out there.
