Iron Chef Foodie Friends Competition 1: Chipotle

Last night, we got together with 3 other couples for our first "Iron Chef" competition.  The ingredient: chipotle. 

Unlike the Iron Chef show on TV, we decided on the ingredient together and were able to prep & cook in advance.  (We had selected our course out of a hat also in advance.)

We made the Orange Chipotle Risotto and Chipotle Shrimp (the risotto was super interesting, having orange juice, saffron, chipotle, asiago cheese and parsley), but my favorite dish of the night was the Spicy, Smoky S'mores Bars.

The winner was chipotle ribs and beer can chicken -- delcious!  Lots of food, wine and fun had by all!!!

The next ingredient challenge is tomatillo.  We will be making the appetizer course which should be easy, but I'm wondering what the dessert and beverage will be?!
