Notes

  • *Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce - the amount you use is determined by your desired spiciness!
  • I used 1 Tablespoon of adobo sauce and NO peppers and found it spicy but not too much to handle.
  • If you like heat, use 1 diced chipotle pepper and 1 Tablespoon of adobo sauce.
  • If you like fiery hot, use 2 chipotle peppers and 1 Tablespoon of adobo sauce.
