About this recipe: For those who like the spicy side of life chipotle chile powder adds sweet heat to everyone's favorite lemon bars.
These rule -- I made them with cayenne and upped the volume of pepper and they were fantastic. - 15 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is excellent!! This is the first time I ever made lemon squares and my husband went crazy over these. The chili powder gives it something extra special. I had to substitue some orange marmalade because I didn't have enough of the apricot and it was still excellent! - 13 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The crust is enough for two 9" pans so I doubled the rest of the recipe. The only substitution I made was mango for the apricot preserves. That's a really nice touch, and the custard is good. However, the chipotle is overpowering. I LIKE chipotle and was tempted to add more after reading the other reviews but didn't for a first try. Very harsh tasting. I'll save the crust (but halve it) and I'll save the custard (but tweak it). I have tons of leftovers and that never happens with my crowd. - 30 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
