"very good flavor I followed the recipe exactly but I agree with the crockpot version spring16 talks about. leave enough time to do out of the crock pot. I also paired it with chipotle sweet potatoes 2010 annual recipes pg 45 nice Sunday dinner."

"Served this on Easter Sunday . Everyone loved it. They asked me to make it this way every year. The only thing I did differently was cook it in the slow cooker, 7 hours on low and then kept it on warm setting until we were ready to eat. I put 1/2 of the glaze on in the beginning of cook time and the other 1/2 halfway through cook time. I did reserve 1 cup of glaze to serve with ham as recipe suggested."

"I made the glaze only today and served on the side of a honey baked ham, it had a great taste and everyone loved it. I doubled the number of peppers and removed some of the seeds while mincing but didn't get all. It was not too spicy for any of us. So easy to make but adds a special touch to your meal."

"I am a vegetarian but I made this sauce to go over tofu and it was AMAZING. I also drizzled some over a round of goat cheese and it was fabulous. I use the canned chipotle in adobe sauce - ONLY USE ONE UNTIL YOU TASTE IT. I like spicy food and found that one was quite enough - you can always add more but you can ruin the recipe by adding too much. Thanks for posting this - I will be using this sauce on everything!!!!"

"I wasn't too sure about this recipe when I read what all went in the glaze, but thought I would give it a try. I used the smallest peppers in the can and took the seeds out so it would be less heat since I don't like my mouth on fire. I was surprised how good it is. This recipe will be a keeper for sure. Ir is excellent!"
