You’ll want to use two skillets for this recipe, as the skillet used to char the vegetables will need a good cleaning (and reseasoning, if cast iron) before it’s used again. Chipotle chiles add a nice smoky heat to the sauce; if you can’t find them, substitute a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce or chile paste. Serve this piquant chicken with lime wedges, chopped cilantro and chiles, and sour cream.

This was delicious! I enjoyed the flavour from the charred vegetable technique. After I pureed the sauce, however, I was certain that I had made a mistake in selecting this recipe as the flavour was really not very good. I even warned my husband that dinner may not be very good that night. But I continued with the recipe and after the simmering of the sauce with the chicken something surprisingly wonderful happened. I cannot explain but it was not the same sauce that I had pureed 30 minutes prior. It was wonderful! Can't wait to make it again.
