    The previous review must have been meant for the chipotle sandwiches! Confusing!!! The cake is outstanding - but I reduced the powdered sugar in the frosting to two cups - it was getting entirely too sweet. I will certainly make this again.

    The cake was very good and I reduce the powdered sugar to 2 cups. Thanks for the advice tylerkirks.

    Recipe is very good... but too hot for most guests. I loved it, but the heat lingered too long. I would recommend either cutting the amount of chipotle peppers by half OR doing something else to reduce the heat. On a second day of eating reheated dish, I mixed one tsp of smooth peanut butter with 3 Tbsps of half-and-half.. and poured it over and under two servings of the dish. It came out a bit milder but still with heat.
