Author Notes: This blend of chipotle mussels is absolutely delish!! It's a fresh blend of cilantro, chipotle peppers, and fire roasted tomatoe that you can use some tasty garlic bread to soak up the juices after you have demolished the mussels!! A great party favorite or something to eat with a friend as an entree on a cozy night in!!Laurenzim
