This is an authentic recipe from Mague's kitchen in San Luis de Potosí, Mexico. I am posting the original "Receta" here in the introduction and then the translated version . Here are the ingredients - Cien gramos de chipotles, 1 kilo cebollas- cortadas en rebanandas, 250 gramos pilonzillo. un poco de pimiento y sal. 1/4 puñada (handful) mejorana - fresca,media puñada, tomillo-fresco, 10 clavos, Algunas pequeñas rebanadas de jicama, 1/4 litro vinagre de manzana.Direcciones: Cubre los chipotles con agua caliente y dejanlos empaparse una hora hasta estan bien blandos. Lavelos con agua caliente y quite las semillas al sabor y tan piquante que desee. Corte todos los chipotles en trizas y dejelos hervir unas 4 horas o más. Agrege las hierbas al vinagre con el azucar y hierve esto por 10 minutos. Freie las cebollas en aciete de olivo hasta que están blandas y agrege todo a los chipotles. Deje que todo hierve media hora mas, There you have the original version! This a very HOT chutney to be served as a side dish - Great with quesadillas (see John's Vegetarian Quesadillas) or with meats and chicken. Chipotles are a very hot pepper so be careful how many seeds you leave in. The flavor is a lovely smokey, tangy, spicy, hot combination. It will keep in the fridge for several weeks but if you are making a full recipe pour it boiling into sterilized sealers, be sure the lid seals. The recipe may be cut in half with excellent results
