MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 16, 2011

I made this recipe exaclty as it was written and didn't think it was too hot. I took it to a potluck and got many compliments from those who like spicy foods.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 8, 2011

Don't know where Melissa gets her chipotle peppers, but I had to reduce the quantity down to 2 TEASPOONS in order to not destroy every taste bud in my mouth!

I thought it also needed a dash or two of salt.

Other than that, this was lovely on baked potatoes, fresh bread, whole grain crackers, and pasta.
