      I made half a recipe for the two of us and it was very good. I had to add water at the end as it was dry and needed something for the sauce. The meat was so tender it fell apart. Served with Baked Sweet potatoes, Lime Cayenne mayo, and crispy corn fritters.

      This was very good. The rub is very fragrant and would make for good grilling rub. I braised this on top of the stove and not in the oven. Took the same amount of time and turned out very tender. I would use a bit more chipotle next time as we like really spicy food, but this would make for a good meal to make guests who are not accustomed to hot foods. Thanks Bev. Served this with fried potatoes and braised leeks in cream sauce.

      I made these the other day and unexpected company showed up. What a HIT! I fixed a Tex-Mex style risotta with them and some crunchy French Bread. Everyone loved them! I ended up cooking them a little longer and the meat was so tender! Thank you Bev!
