Glazed Ham with Chipotle Peppers


This is the most wonderful recipe EVER!! This glaze would taste great on a Sweet, Smokey and Spicy! I love it. Kids love it. Families love it.

Seriously I think this glaze would be great on chicken, pork.. but I think I’m going to try it on some baby back ribs.. just the right spice and sticky”ness”

This was the prettiest,tastiest ham I have ever made!! Looking forward to using the yummy leftovers in a ham and potato casserole recipe!

I’ll be making this often!
