Spicy Chipotle Croutons

Pin It!

Have you ever made homemade croutons? Do you know how easy it is? Do you know how tasty they are? Well, do you?! Homemade croutons taste about 500 times better than store bought croutons. Know why? 'Cause they were made with love. It's true. As you're mixing your bread cubes together with the oil and the seasoning, a little bit of love gets sprinkled right in as well. Isn't that sweet?

If you aren't already on the homemade crouton bus (is there a bus? or perhaps it's a band wagon...) then i'm here to tell you that it's time to hop aboard! Grab some bread, some oil and some seasonings from your cabinet and hop to it! 

I made some delicious Spicy Chipotle Croutons to share with you that would go really well on pretty much any salad, but would be especially taasty a Santa Fe style one. Yum. They aren't super spicy, but they do have a little kick!
