Comments 

Chipotle's are one of my favorite ingredients to play with. I've put them in about everything I've cooked from one time to another. When Tabasco came out with the Chipotle pepper sauce, I was relieved to not have to smoke my own peppers.
This recipe came from a family BBQ where we just gathered what we had at the last minute arrival of surprise out of town guests. It was a huge hit and now they return every year and demand these.
We happened to have a bottle of SH Moscato on hand *whew* as I picked it up the day before wanting to try it. We felt it was a perfect match.
At least now THEY bring the wine :)
