    Orange Chipotle Ham

    If you’re preparing a large meal for family and friends, the Orange Chipotle Jamón is a perfect recipe to serve. The orange juice in the sauce makes it just a little sweet, while a touch of chipotle adds some kick. And it's poured over a ham to make a sticky sweet glaze. 


    Ingredients
    1 1/2
    canned chipotle chiles in adobo
    1 1/2
    pints
    fresh orange juice
    1/4
    cup
    fresh lime juice
    1
    tablespoon
    ground cumin
    1/2
    tablespoon
    ground achiote or paprika
    1
    tablespoon
    orange zest
    2
    tablespoons
    tequila
    *
    Smithfield Honey Glaze Packet
    1/2
    cup
    sugar or honey
    1
    cinnamon stick
    2
    whole cloves
    8
    pounds
    Smithfield Hickory Smoked Spiral Sliced Ham
    1/4
    cup
    balsamic vinegar
    2
    tablespoons
    corn starch
    Directions
    For the Orange Chipotle Sauce: Remove seeds from the chipotle pepper or chilies. For a spicy sauce, do not remove seeds. Combine the orange juice, lime juice, chipotle chilies, cumin and achiote in a blender and puree until smooth. Strain if desired. Place the orange chipotle puree in a medium sized saucepan. Add the orange zest, tequila, Smithfield honey glaze packet, sugar or honey, cinnamon stick, and cloves. Bring the sauce to a boil, reduce the heat to medium low, and cook for 25-30 minutes. Remove the cloves and the cinnamon stick.
    For the Baked Ham with Orange Chipotle Sauce: Pre-heat oven to 325F. Place the Smithfield Spiral Sliced Ham in a large baking pan, with the flat side of ham facing down. Pour 1/2 of the orange chipotle sauce over the ham. Cover the ham with foil and bake for about 1 hour. Warm remaining orange chipotle sauce in saucepan. Remove foil from the ham and pour the remaining sauce over the ham. Continue baking the ham for another 40-45 minutes, basting it every 10-15 minutes with the pan sauces. Remove the ham from the oven and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before carving and serving.
    For the Orange Chipotle Gravy: Place about 3 cups of the pan sauces in a small sauce pan with the balsamic vinegar. Bring to boil and cook about 5 minutes. Meanwhile mix the corn starch with a little bit of the pan sauces or water and stir into gravy sauce. Mix until well dissolved and thickened. Remove from heat and serve warm.
