I got this from the Costco cookbook and it was become a family favorite. You can use a cooked rotisserie chicken. I have also used canned chopped chipotle peppers instead of the powder with good success. If you want to use this as an appetizer just make 24-36 little cakes.
This is a make ahead dish. Note the prep time is for the marinating lamb then cooling. Sometimes I will buy the red peppers in a jar and also use grape tomatoes. I got this recipe from Gourmet Magazine.
This is great if you make it the day before to let the flavors develop. Make until step 3 then refrigerate. Repeat it gently until hot before finishing dish. Creamed coconut is not the same as coconut cream. Creamed coconut is a very concentrated coconut extract without the water. It is basically coconut cream concentrate, and can be made into coconut cream by mixing it with water, or into coconut milk by mixing it with a larger amount of water
