  1. This was a big hit at our house for Sunday lunch! Both my husband and I satisfied our "Chili's craving" that we regularly get (but seldom satisfy since we live overseas). Yum can't wait to try some of these other recipes!

  2. I did a test run of this today just making the honey chipotle sauce then pouring it over already fried chicken wings from Winn Dixie...OMG, they came out amazing. The flavor is spot on, exactly like Chili's!! Thank you soooo much. Now when I crave Chili's Honey Chipotle Chicken, I can have them right in the comforts of my own home.

  3. Love chillis and their chicken crispers. This will be my 2nd time attempting this recipe. Thank you so much

    From Allspice to Za’atar: A history of spice :
    There are hundreds of spices in use in all parts of the world, adding flavor, whether subtle or assertive, to favorite dishes. References to spices date to back as far as the earliest written communications. In Biblical texts, manna is referred to as having the color of coriander. Carvings in a palace wall dating back to 1700 BCE show a monkey picking saffron.
    A Practical Past
    Spices were first sought out for medicine and food preservation. The antimicrobial properties in many spices made them perfect for both of those purposes. Ancient medical texts reference many of the seasonings that sit in your spice cabinets today.
    Spices were also important because of their power to change the flavors of food. Where we have access to many foods year-round, in the past, people were restricted to what they could raise and catch locally. Spices helped add variety to their diets.
    Spices fueled world exploration, as people hungered for flavors beyond what grew in their local area. Spice routes were tightly controlled, so many explorers sought out alternate ways to get to spice-producing regions. Because of the difficulty of obtaining them, many seasonings were worth their weight in gold. Wars were fought over them.
    As the World Expands
    In the modern world, refrigerators keep food fresh. International trade and shipping mean that favorite treats know no season and we can have whatever we crave at any time of year. Seasonings once available only to the very wealthy are now accessible to anyone.
    But, exotic spices are more widely sought than ever. American diets have expanded to encompass cuisines from all over the world, and modern spice cabinets have expanded with them. Here at U Simply Season, you can find spices to satisfy all of your culinary needs. Choose freshly made spice blends to fit specific recipes. Or, create your own custom blends for your signature dishes. No matter what you choose, these simple ingredients add bright life to your kitchen.

  10. works great with canned chipotles too I mixed everything in the food processor and presto, Chili's Honey chipotle sauce. :)

    1. I wanted to try using canned ones too. How many did you use and what brand. Thanks in advance

  11. When I did the sauce, the ketchup was "clotty" ...should I whisk it next time or did this not happen to anyone else? I'm super excited to see how it turns out!! It's almost done now :)
