EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you're watching your fat intake, skip the butter in this recipe. It does help to round out the flavors in the sauce, but if you’re looking for ways to cut fat from your diet, this would be an easy one. You may wish to add a little extra brown sugar to help offset the heat from the chile in adobo sauce, if it’s too spicy.
