"Can the chipotle sauce be omitted? My husband doesn't like very spicy stuff. it aggravates his acid reflux."

"We really liked this sauce for a change. I actually used more dill but that is probably just a taste preference. I am going to try it on baked chicken. That was a great idea and I have all of the ingredients and don't always use them up."
