"Sweet, Smokey and Spicy! Go ahead and leave the seeds in if you enjoy the heat."

"I followed this recipe with 2 exceptions: I didn't add salt, since ham is already salty, and I added a tsp of cinnamon. Perfection! My 20 guests were sopping up the excess glaze with their bread! Thank you Rita!"
"This is the most wonderful recipe EVER!! This glaze would taste great on a shoe..lol i did double the recipe and used a total of 2 chipotle's didn't double the spices and it was perfection.. the DH could not stop picking little pieces off the ham every time he walked by.
I think this glaze would be great on chicken, pork.. but i think im going to try it on some baby back ribs.. just the right spice and sticky"ness" will be making this often!"
"This was the prettiest,tastiest ham I have ever made!! My family loved it! Looking forward to using the yummy leftovers in a ham and potato casserole recipe! Thanks for sharing!!"
"Whoo, baby - this stuff is really incredible! Best Easter ham EVER!! The glaze would be great on ribs, chicken, whatever. We served it with herbed sweet potatoes and asparagus, with key lime pie for dessert. Fabulous!!! We didn't have any adobo sauce left in the can, so substituted some bottled chipotle sauce. It gave it a nice kick. Left the seeds in the chipotles, too. This will one recipe I make over & over again!"
"Wow, oh wow this is a true 5 star recipe. I've had it saved for some time and finally got around to trying it. I did not buy a smoked ham so the ham I did buy was not full cooked. I cooked it one hour @ 325, then I poured the glaze over it and cooked on 300 for about two more hours. I had poured off the juice of the pineapple but next time I will save to add to the sauce as it cooks. The sauce got too thick and started to stick to the pan, so I added a very small amount of water a few times as I basted. Also I cut the chipotle peppers back to one and it was just the right heat.The ham was so delicous, I will keep this around for a long time."
"Sooooooooooooo GOOD!!!! We will be making this again and again!"
"This was wonderful and I will using the sauce on chicken and pork chops as well!!!"
"This sounds really good. I am anxious to try it."
"LOOK NO FURTHER! The ham glaze search stops here. I could drink this -- it's that good! I just happened to have a whole nutmeg and it made such a difference (I'm sure pre-grated would be fine, though). It didn't take much to give it a fabulous flavor and I saved a little to dip my ham. Love the little kick the chilis gave it. You are a GENIUS!!"
"I love this! I've made it a few times and always get rave reviews. The leftovers are really good (not that there's ever much left)."
"I screwed mine up and it was still yummy! I used a spiral ham that I got on sale and was very confused about cooking time/temp (this recipe vs. ham direction card). I went with this recipes cook time/temp. but then stepped out of the house for "a few minutes" which turned to 1.5 hours--so my ham burned a little and my glaze didn't get to cook very long onto the ham. STILL...it was yummy! I kept sneaking bites as I was cutting up the ham to put away after our meal. I will definitely try again and see if it possibly can improve. It was plenty good as was! THANKS!"
"This is FABULOUS! Served it over a spiral cut ham (@ the grocery store..no high priced cut here) and it got absolutely RAVE reviews from the 15 + guests at our Easter brunch. I'm going to keep this in mind for other meats and such."
"Yipee! Just what I was looking for! THE PICKY ONE chose this, lol. I prep my ham a little differently - I parboil it for about 30 minutes which removes some of the saltiness AND leaves me with a ham broth for soup! Then I carve it up & put the pieces in a 9x11 pan, pour the glaze over & bake for 'awhile.' This is an excellent glaze - VERY easy & that sweet hot flavor that I adore! I used a 20oz can pineapple, 2 small chiptles & 1 large. It was just right. THANK YOU, Rita & God Bless. xoxo Bethie"
"Awesome glaze for a ham or for anything especially if cooked on the BBQ :-). That is what I had to do with the ham. I ran out of room in the oven so I whacked it on the rotisserie on my outdoor BBQ grill. I cooked the ham over indirect heat above a drip pan filled with water at about 400F for 45 minutes to get the fat moving. Reduced the heat to about 350F and basted it every 15 minutes or so. I used 3 chilies with seeds in the sauce. The heat mellowed out nicely by the time it was done...Absolutely delish!"
"This is so simple to make and yet has a wonderfully complex flavor. Very, very good. We made this for our Easter dinner and I think it will become our tradition."
"Made Feb. 08, 2008. I doubled sauce recipe because only had 20 oz. can of Pineapple. Froze the rest for later use. Used 4 seeded peppers making it alittle spicy hot. Next time I'll keep seeds in 1 pepper. Double recipe almost fills blender container. Would be good on pork, chicken, shrimp & BBQ too. Great Stuff!!!!!"
"So easy and SO IMPRESSIVE! Easter is coming and this would be spectacular! Made with a 7# spiral sliced ham using this awesome glaze! DH could not stop raving! Sorry I was late in making this. Was going to make it for Christmas but ran out of time. This would be so amazing, gracing ANY holiday table. I can see this as a star attraction any day too! I used 2 UNseeded chipotles and a little more than 1 TBSP of the adobo and it was not at all spicy. The glaze had just the rick kick to it. If serving young ones I would have no worries making this as written and maybe just leaving any extra glaze off their portion. If they want some glaze you could always put a little syrup on their plate to make them think they have the 'grown up' version. But really this is not hot at all. Thank you Rita for making me look like a ROCK STAR again! Made for Bevvy Tag!"
"We had this for our Sunday dinner this past week end. It is an excellent tasting glaze for ham. I love chipotle, so this was right up my alley!! I made the recipe exactly as written, and we absolutely loved it.I will definitely make this again, and I think that next time, I will add a little more of the chipotle, just to suit my family's tastes. And the leftover ham was awesome in a pot of slow cooked beans the next day! Thanks Rita!"
"I am not much of a ham fan but my family is so I keep trying new recipes. Your recipe has now turned me into a fan. What a taste!! There was not a morsal left. Good job!!"
"I used this recipe New Year's day and was so impressed. This will definitely be in my best of zaar cookbook and a recipe I will use again. I reduced the recipe as I was cooking a small ham. The flavor the glaze adds is just incredible....spicy, sweet, smoky. I served this with black eyed peas and baked sweet potatoes. Thanks Rita! "
