Cook'sTipIf chili beans with chipotle peppers are not available, add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce to regular chili beans.Cook's Tip: If chipotle thick-and-chunky salsa is not available, add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce to regular thick-and-chunky salsa. Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are dried smoked jalapeno peppers packed in a red piquant sauce made from dried chiles, herbs and vinegar. Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce can be found in the ethnic food section of large supermarkets.Cook's Tip: The amount of gravy in fully-cooked pot roast products varies.
