"My picky boyfriend always eats seconds of this. It's like enchiladas without the tortillas. Serve over rice -- we like to serve with yellow rice or Mexican rice. You will want something to soak up all the delicious sauce." — KNBUCHANAN

chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
I loved this dish. Followed the recipe to the T. When I went to dice the peppers in adobo they were filled with seeds, i did scrape them out and am glad i did. This dish did have quite a bite. Served with mexican rice and flour tortillas. Will definately make this again!
Perhaps I should have known better, but I have never cooked with chipotle peppers before.... This was HOT! The flavor was nice, but we could not stand the heat enough to eat very much of this at all. I am sure this is a good recipe for those who like spicy, but this one was just not for us!
Do not give this recipe a bad review just because you don't like a little flavor and spice. This is HOT. To bring the heat down, add more sour cream. The only few things I did different here, I sauteed the onion and bell pepper separate from the chicken. I then combined everything in a stew pot and let everything simmer for 40 minutes. This was tasty and with tons of flavor. DELICIOUS!
Excellent recipe and easy too. I would certainly make this for company. I thought two chipotle peppers might be too much but they were just right. I did chop them up before adding (with their seeds too)
Yum! 5 stars for a great punch of flavor in a quick and easy recipe. I omitted the onion and green peppers (hub won't eat either and green peppers seemed out of place anyway). I whirled the chipotles in the food processor. Served over rice with a side of black beans - good stuff.
Deliciousss! We loved this. Didn't change a thing didn't need to. Serve over rice or pasta. Made the Cool Summer Cucumber and Tomato Toss (from this site) as well. Thanks for sharing KNBUCHANAN.
Wow! This was delicious! B/c I'm on a special diet, it's hard to find things I can eat! I just took the butter out completely and used fat-free sour cream, and a tiny tiny bit of olive oil. But WOW! This was quite amazing!
I coated the chicken with a mixture of brown rice flour, chickpea flour, and tapioca starch so it would be gluten free and I had to sub a mixture of bacon grease and sunflower oil b/c my son is allergic to olive oil. I did not chop the chipotles because the recipe didn't say to, and to compensate, I added in about 1 Tbsp extra adobo sauce. I served it to my husband and son without the sour cream, as they are sensitive to dairy, and the rest of us ate it with the sour cream. To be honest, it was a little rich for me, I had a bite before adding the sour cream and preferred it that way. My children did not care for it (too spicy for them, I think), but my husband loved it and at all of his serving and my son's. If/when I make this again, I will omit the sour cream for all of us. Thanks for the recipe!
