The first time I made this recipe I ran into a similar problem as Karen S. When I went back to re-review the recipe, I saw that its simply the verbiage chosen to describe the quantity of chipotles. The recipe seems as though its calling for the whole can of chipotles in adobo. That, my friends is not the case. The recipe is calling for one chipotle from a small can of chipotles in adobo. My second time around it was outstanding! The deep earthy flavor of the chipotle was perfect! If you find it lacking in the "smokiness department" you can add smoked paprika as a colorful and flavorful garnish!
I need help. I made the Smoky Butternut Squash soup and I used a small can of Chipotle Peppers the receipe called for and it’s so HOT I can’t eat it. How do I tone down the heat?? Please help I don’t want to waste it. Thank you. Karen
