When you are deciding what to serve for the holidays … are you a pork or turkey kind of person?
We are definitely a pork kind of family!!
Since we’re a multicultural family I always try to have a little bit of everything so my kids can know more about our traditions. For example, my husband, and his family are Portuguese and they use to eat Bacalao (Codfish) for Christmas. I am Venezuelan and our tradition is to eat a BIG FAT and delicious roasted pork leg called “Pernil”. As you can see … opposite poles. So what I like to do is serve both. Yes, both. It’s a lot of food, I know! But in our case, the holidays tend to revolve around food, and we love to eat… what can I say that you do not know already?
As much as I like cooking, and eating, I don’t want to spend the whole day in the kitchen. I have done it and it’s not pretty; at the end of the day, I’m so tired that I cannot enjoy anything I cooked. So, instead of cooking the whole pork leg sometimes I prepare a pork ham, which is great because it’s super easy to make and can feed a crowd.
Chipotle Glazed Ham is my husband favorite version! It has the perfect amount of heat and sweetness. Ham lover’s heaven!
This chipotle glazed ham is beyond delicious, and the leftovers are amazing!!
To make the glaze I used La Morena® Chipotle Peppers in Knorr® Tomato with Chicken Granulated Bouillon – 2.2 lbs, which are available at Walmart at the International aisle. These two products have the quality and flavor I am looking for, especially when it comes to creating delicious meals during this special holiday season.
Prepare this iconic holiday centerpiece! Its crunchy, sweet and spicy crust and juicy interior will leave your guests impressed and happy.
- 1 ( 3-5 lb) spiral-sliced fully cooked ham
- Fresh chopped pineapple and cranberries (optional)
- 1-2 chipotle chilies adobo in depending on the level of heat you want
- 10 oz pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon Knorr® Tomato with Chicken Granulated Bouillon
Remove the ham from the refrigerator and set the ham aside to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the lower third. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
Place the ham on the baking sheet and tightly cover the ham with aluminum foil. Bake for 60 - 90 minutes, or until the ham is heated through, approx. 20 minutes per pound.
Make the glaze: Blend the chipotles chiles with the pineapple juice in a small food processor or blender. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat combine pineapple-chipotle mixture, brown sugar, maple syrup and Knorr® Tomato with Chicken Granulated Bouillon. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Once the mixture has come to a boil, reduce the heat to low and cook until reduced and a bit thicker, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside until the ham is done.
After the ham has been baking for 60 - 90 minutes, remove from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 425º F.
Remove the foil, add the chopped pineapple and cranberries to the baking sheet, if using, and brush the glaze on the ham. Return the ham to the oven and bake uncovered until nice, glossy, and caramelized, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to rest 5 -10 minutes before carving. Serve warm with the remaining glaze.
