      Puree mixture in a blender (or use an immersion blender) until smooth. Stir in the honey and vinegar. You can make this ahead and refrigerate for a couple of days if needed. NOTE: You will need exactly 1 cup of the puree for the rice.

    6. 6
      Reduce heat to medium, add garlic and minced jalapenos and cook , stirring constantly until fragrant, about 1 1/2 minutes.
    7. 7
      Stir in broth, pureed mixture, and salt.

      I made this using rice that I had cooked. Blended the sauce ingredients then brought it to a boil reduced to a simmer for 10 minutes. Added to the rice. Great flavors. Thanks. Made for Mischief Makers ZWT 2011

      Very nice rice!! I did not have a chipotle chile in adobo, so I used 1/4 teaspoon of chipotle chili powder instead. Other than that, I made as written. Loved the sweetness from the honey (I used Tupelo) and the fire roasted tomatoes added just a hint of smokey flavor as well. Overall, I very tasty side for our dinner. I'll make this again! Thanks for posting, made for ZWT7 and the HOT PINK LADIES.

      Great flavors! I thought I was being wise by using all of the puree and dumping everything in my rice cooker.... one cup of broth (as recipe stated) and 3 cycles later, it was amazing! I didn't do the jalapeno because I was out, but the chipotle gave great spice alone! Thanks!
