Tip #1

- Chipotle chiles are dried and smoked jalapeño chiles. They can be found dried, pickled or canned in adobo sauce. Place any remaining chiles in freezer container and freeze for future use.

Tip #2

- An immersion blender can be used to puree the soup. It is a wand with a blending blade at the bottom. It is ideal for blending soups and sauces right in the pan.
