This chicken is so yummy. Perlita, my good friend and neighbor, taught me how to make it. I know, lately Perlita has been featured a lot, but when your friend is a good cooker… you gotta share with the world people’s talents LOL. What I love of this chicken is that it is creamy, spicy, and easy to make. When Perlita told me how she made it, I couldn’t believe how simple it was. The sauce has layers of flavors. which makes it hard to believe that it doesn’t have too many ingredients.
Since this is a Mexican recipe, this chicken is spicy. Depending on your spice tolerance you can make it as spicy as you want, by adding more or less chipotle peppers. I usually don’t use peppers or chiles on my recipes, mostly because coming from Colombia, there is an inherent fear of spice. Now, that I have been hanging out more with Perlita, that fear has been fading away. I have learned so much about the different peppers and spices that are out there. So far my favorite one is the chipotle pepper because, beside the spice, it gives a smoky flavor that I was surprised to find.
If you haven’t tried anything like this, get out of your comfort zone and spice it up!
