I loved this sauce. The chipotle was not overpowering and very subtle. The same with the heat.

Awesome! Use the nopalitos for best results, or if you can find fresh nopales in your area, even better - remove any 'needles' with a paring knife, cut in thin strips and simmer in salted water with a couple of garlic cloves for about 10-15 min. I agree with mama's kitchen about the sauce consistency; I thickened it with a little cornstarch and water, and it came together nicely. Thanks a million for the recipe!

Amazing flavor in this sauce. I cooked the sauce ALOT longer than called for as it was very thin after the addition of the broth. There was ALOT of sauce- More than needed here, but that is ok- it would make a great pasta sauce! I didnt use green beans but DID use jarred Nopalitos. mmmmmm If you get the opportunity to try nopalitos, do! This is a great recipe to use for that! They have a green bean type flavor but are far better with a slight tang. Amazing flavor! This would be a 5 star recipe if the sauce were thicker, the flavors really intensified after it thickened. thanks for a great recipe!
