    Sue Lau's Note:

    Tender ribs with a flavorful, spicy chile sauce. I like to serve this with black beans or poblano chiles stuffed with a seasoned goat cheese mixture, and sometimes a small salad.

      Whoa mamma this is HOT!!! I made the sauce and ended up adding 1/3 cup of honey and 2T of sugar to take some of the heat off. I should have only used half of a pepper but I was gung ho. Great way to use my ancho peppers. I am always looking for a new crock pot recipe for ribs, so muchas gracias!
