The chipotle chiles add heat to this recipe. Increase or decrease the heat level by using more or less of the chipotle chiles in adobo sauce. Place any remaining chipotle chiles and adobo sauce in a freezer container and freeze for future use. Just slightly thaw, and chop up some of the chiles in your taco fillings or to spice up soups and stews.
