I used chicken instead of turkey, because that's what I had available. This was delicious and easy to make!

Loved this! The only thing I did different was seasoned meat with Mrs. dash garlic blend instead of salt and pepper. Definitely am repeating.

Fantastic. I only found it slightly spicy, though the chipotle flavor is definitely there. Doubled the sauce, which made a little too much, but it's a great sauce to have over leftovers or another dish. Went great with Spanish rice. Mine was a little sweet, probably because I used brown sugar Splenda but didn't cut the amount in half as you're supposed to. A keeper.

This was very tasty but a little too spicy for my kids. But I used the leftovers with Spanish rice as filler for enchiladas. That was a five star meal!
