I always enjoy orange and chipotle together so I knew we would like this recipe. I did keep the seeds in for extra heat DH liked that! Very quick to make. I did use fat free half and half.Thanks!
Made this last night for dinner. Very easy, quick and very good! I did use a little less cilantro (personal preference) and used fat free half and half. Thought it was very tasty and will definitely make again. This would be great served over pasta or rice. Thanks for posting!
