Chili's and Lemons

Sadly, I found the Moroccan Chicken with Preserved Lemons a lot of work, a lot of ingredients, and frankly "screaming" for some sweet, to offset the heat! That is one recipe I will never make again!
I've also recently been introduced to the TV show "Chopped" on the food network. This evening, however, I'm aghast... Not only the contestants (which I might be able to excuse,) but in two episodes of 4 I've watched tonight, even the JUDGES call the particular
chili a CHIPOLTE! Am I nuts? Well, ok, I'm a self proclaimed "crazy" person, but come on here! I'd never heard of this particular type of chili until maybe a year ago, and bought my first ever can just months ago, as I'm such a WIMP when it comes to "heat."
Even I know that it's a CHIPOTLE...
A chipotle chili is in fact, a roasted jalapeno, and most often (that I know of) used in "adobo sauce." Gingerly, I opened the can, and pulled one of the chili's out, placing on a plate. I then chopped it into small pieces, held my breath, and put a small
bit into my mouth. I thought that I'd have to call the fire dept! Not wanting to waste them, I placed a chili with sauce in each section of an ice cube tray, and froze them, placing them in a freezer bag once frozen. I have a time or two used some of this
in a recipe, but be assured, SPARINGLY!
Well all, I just had to get that off my chest, and I had said that I would report on the chicken fiasco... This won't stop me from being happy, healthy, and cookin' crazy!
