While our other spicy maple syrup recipe (see it here) focuses on pure heat with the neutral-tasting cayenne pepper, 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. So chipotle maple syrup will add a bit of wow factor to your meal – earthy, smoky, fiery, and sweet.
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. Best, of all it takes minutes to make, as long as you have chipotle available.
