    Chef NeedSumHelp's Note:

    I love the distinct flavor of the chipotle chiles in this recipe, and using chicken thighs is a refreshing change from the frequently used ground beef and taco seasoning. For milder heat use less chiles and seed them!

      Very yummy. I have made this many times and now have my own changes. I use 1 1/2 c of salsa (depending on how it is cooking up I may add more as it goes), 6 tsp chiles and 1/2 c taco seasoning mix instead of the chili powder.

      Made this for our annual taco party. It was delish, rave reviews from the friends. The kids found it to be a bit too spicy, and I would agree if I wasn't into a little kick. Chicken was moist and flavorful. I used the entire can of chipotle chilis.

      My husband and I tried this recipe out and we were saddened by the results. The chicken didn't have much flavor at all, and was dry. I even added a bit of chicken stock because I was worried it might be dried out since there wasn't much liquid in there. The main probably was that you couldn't taste any of the spices from the hot sauce or from the chipotles. Not sure what went wrong. Hopefully someone else has better luck. :)
