Expert Tips

Instead of the spicy heat of chipotle chiles and adobo sauce, omit them and increase the chili powder to 2 teaspoons.

Chipotle chiles are dried smoked jalapeño chiles. They are available dry in bulk or canned in adobo, a spicy Mexican sauce made with chiles, herbs and vinegar. Chipotles and adobo add smoky and spicy flavor to recipes; look for chipotles canned in adobo sauce in the grocery store's Mexican-foods aisle.
