I modified this recipe, I used (1) 7.5 oz. can of chipotle peppers in adobo and added a quarter cup of honey. The contrast of flavors between sweet and hot is incredible, it tastes equally as good on beef or chicken. This stuff lasts forever in the fridge, and freezes really well also.


Wow - this sauce is amazing, and so easy. I didn't have any chipotle peppers so I used a teaspoon of chipotle chili powder instead. I used it to marinade chicken before grilling and the results were wonderful. We loved the spicy sweet combination. I will definitely be making this regularly.

I doubled this recipe and marinated a 3lb. pork loin roast for about 3 hours. I cooked it in my Flavorwave oven for about an hour. I left some marinade out of the marinating bag for basting as it cooked and for dipping once it was done. It was DELICIOUS! Just the right amount of sweet and spicy. I even used light maple syrup! Everyone loved it! This sauce/marinade will definately be a regular for us! Can't wait to try it on chicken! Thanks!!
