Simple but tasty - great for a bbq **Update May2008 - if you don't have orange vinegar, do follow Andi of LongMeadow Farms excellent suggestion of making your own by just adding 1 tablespoon of fresh orange juice, fresh orange zest earlier in the day to a white vinegar. I actually prefer the zing of her version over store bought. Thanks Andi!

The combination of chipotle and orange juice was fantastic in this! Is this a unique combination I wonder or is this just the first time I've encountered it? I also used orange juice, but not any zest, so my feeling was that 1 tablespoon orange juice was not quite enough. I guess I'd recommend two tablespoons without the zest. One other thing I did wrong with this recipe was add the sauce to 2 bunches asparagus instead of 1 bunch which meant there wasn't enough sauce to go around. Trust me, the sauce is so good you'll want it all. We sauteed long enough so the asparagus was crisp-tender, maybe 8-10 minutes? This was sooo good.

- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic clove
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
