Spicy Jam and Manchego Toast with TAZO® Chai

What do you do to unwind? My favorite place to be is curled up on my couch with my favorite blanket, a few throw pillows tucked in all around me, wearing comfy clothes, with a delicious drink in hand. Others I know enjoy taking a walk, gardening, knitting/crocheting/sewing, coloring, napping, reading, and more.

During my work day when I start to feel like I need a break, a walk to the kitchen to get a drink is the perfect little pick-me-up. It’s a pretty short walk! Still, the change of scenery even for two minutes really lifts the spirits.

I just had the opportunity to try the new TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods. So deliciously creamy and spicy! I have a Keurig® at home and one to use at my office, which means that a hot and comforting TAZO® Chai Latte is pretty much always just a few seconds away.

New York Times Bestselling author and host Padma Lakshmi created some wonderful recipes that will pair perfectly with your mug of TAZO® Chai. Tea and chai have always been a part of Padma’s life and family history and she did amazing work developing these recipes. I want to try every single one! Find them all by clicking here.

I made Padma’s Toast with Manchego Cheese and Spicy Jam. Since the TAZO® Chai Latte is the perfect combination of creamy and spicy, this recipe is just the right match. Little slices of sourdough bread topped with spicy pepper jam and rich manchego cheese… how about that for an afternoon treat?!

Just for fun, what can you do in the time you wait for your Keurig® to brew your TAZO® Chai Latte? It takes like, 10 seconds (total guess), so we have to get creative. Leave some ideas in the comments below. Here are some ideas off the top of my head:

Do 5 sit-ups – #FitMom
Wash a dish – 1082 more Keurig® brews and you’ll have an empty sink!
Take a selfie – #DuckLips
Live stream on social media – “Hello world! Here’s my chai!”
Give your man a kiss – #MCM
Close your eyes and imagine you’re on a tropical beach – Take me away!
Sing the chorus of your favorite song at the top of your lungs – PARA PARA PARADISE!
Put on a pair of stretchy pants – Mom leggings for the win!
Text a friend – #Besties

Better yet, in the time it takes to brew a TAZO® Chai Latte you can be well on your way to having a snack of spicy jam and manchego toast!

TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods are made with milk, tea leaves, and spices. Black tea is my favorite and it’s used to create this rich chai. The spices are a blend of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and vanilla which is basically the definition of warm comfort in a mug!
