Reviews for Chipotle Cheese Sauce
"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."
"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."
