Chipotle and Piloncillo Glazed Ham

Piloncillo is a special Mexican pure brown sugar pressed into a cone shape that makes this glazed ham recipe irresistibly tender. Combined with the low heat of smoky chipotle peppers, it is sweeter and bolder than any traditional honey glazed ham recipe. This popular Christmas main dish was developed by the connoisseurs of Latin food and culture at LatinoFoodie and will transform your holiday meal.
