Chipotle peppers add deep smoky flavor to this rich blue cheese and cream sauce. It's delicious spooned over a grilled steak. Try it with fresh pasta or drizzled over a gourmet burger, too!

It was great, and very simple. I also added rstd red peppers w/ the chipotles. I used it as a pasta sauce, but I can't wait to try it on steak.

The chipotle-blue cheese combination is an inspired idea, but I preferred sour cream as a base. Also, you must be extremely careful with the amount of chipotles you use. I don't even use the peppers; just about 3 tsp of adobo sauce. I add chopped fresh cilantro, and it's fantastic!

If you don't like very spicy food, you probably want to stay away from this recipe - the chipotle/adobe sauce is incredibly hot! Even though Husband loves spice, he didn't much like this at all, saying he wouldn't mind a creamy chipotle sauce OR a creamy blue cheese and chive sauce, but together, it just didn't work. It didn't look very appetizing either. Oh well. Thanks anyway.
