This is a modification of a recipe I saw on the web. I think you’ll love it. You can use the onion jam on roasted or grilled meats, hamburgers, over Mexican food or just spread on bread. You can also find the recipe under condiments in the recipe tab section of the blog.- jughandle
Spicy red onion spread
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 red onions, peeled and sliced into slivers
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2 chipotle chiles in adobo, diced
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
Salt to taste
Heat the oil in a large skillet on med heat. Add the onions and garlic, and while sauteing for 10 minutes stir occasionally or until softened.
Cover, and cook for 20 more minutes, stirring once. Uncover and add the chipotle chiles, balsamic vinegar and cayenne. Stirring often, cook until the vinegar is reduced and onions are softened and a dark, red brown, about 10-15 minutes. Add salt to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature. Will keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.
Yield: about 1/2 pint
Note: You can add more chipotle chiles if you want it to be hotter.
