These were excellent. Cooked everything inside in a pan and simmered in 3/4 of the sauce at the end. Left out tomatoes and added garlic and cilantro. Definitely a keeper.
These are delicious. I took the other reviewers' advice and cut the chipotle peppers down to 3 instead of 4. I also didn't have time to skewer everything and cook on the grill, so I just cooked it in a large pan like stir-fry and it turned out delicious. I think the sauce could have been cut in half since there was a lot of liquid in the pan by cooking it this way. Will definitely make again.
loved it.. took advice from others used less peppers...just the right balance of sweet and heat..
I like spicy but this was just way too hot. If I ever make it again I would probably add only two chipotle peppers. It almost taste like BBQ with a bite.
