Southern Collard Greens

Southern Collard Greens
8 Servings
This recipe was inspired by:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 large onion, sliced, thin
3 large garlic cloves, sliced, thin
1 large chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
2 large bunches of collard greens, cleaned rinsed and chopped
2 oranges juiced
½ teaspoon of Cajun seasoning 
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon liquid smoke

Heat the oil in a large saute pan or wok, add the crushed red pepper flakes and saute until peppers are slightly browned, do not let them burn. 
Add the onions, garlic and chipotle pepper in adobe sauce; saute until onions are translucent.
Add the collards and all remaining ingredients, carefully mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.
Cover, bring to a gentle boil, reduce heat to low and cook 30 minutes stirring occasionally.
Taste, season with additional salt and pepper as needed; sprinkle with dried pepper flakes, if desired.
