The sweet smokiness is delicious with chicken and salmon…
While our other spicy maple syrup recipe focuses on pure heat, this one is about adding something more to the sweetness. Here it’s all about the smokiness behind chipotle peppers. That earthy smoky undertone pairs so perfectly with the rich sweetness of maple syrup.
Try it with your morning pancakes for something truly wicked to start the morning. But don’t stop there – chipotle maple syrup is a tasty pairing with both chicken and salmon. We love it, too, as a simple dipper with fried chicken fingers.
Chipotle Maple Syrup
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1 chipotle pepper
- 2 tablespoons butter melted
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Or place all ingredients in a large bowl and use a hand blender to blend until smooth.
Note, this recipe calls for dried chipotle pepper, not chipotle in adobo sauce. You can buy dried chipotle peppers here.
Concerned about the spiciness? Pull back on the chipotle pepper by half. The smokiness will be much less, but so will the heat.
