Very good! nice balance of sweet and heat, except for us it needs more heat!! I add about 2 or 3 more chipotles to mine. YUM!

Very flavorful that wakes up your tastebuds! Not real spicy but the flavor, yum! A friend let me try some that she had bought at the store for about $2 for a small container and it tasted pretty good but this recipe tasted even better! It beats the $2 little container!
