Orange Chipotle Sugar Snap Peas

One of my favorite flavor combos is orange and chipotle. The sweet bright flavor of oranges balance the deep warmth of chipotle peppers to yield just the right amounts of heat and sweet! Use this combo on sweet sugar snap peas like I do here, or try it with other veggies like broccoli or cauliflower!
