Delicious. Oven time of 15 minutes was perfect the asparagus still had crunch. I had to improvise - Rotel tomatoes are not avalable here nor could I find lime pepper. So I used a tin of diced tomatoes with chilies and lime juice. Excellent flavour. This recipe is tucked away to make again.

mmm an easy delicious way to use asparagus! Where did you find lime pepper seasoning? hunted everywhere, so i used fresh lime juice and added some pepper to it. Also subed stewed tomatos and added fresh jalepeno to them. Turned out delicious! we loved the tex mex flavour and i will be making this again.
