Using Chipotles

I never met a chili I didn't love! I'm actually writing to give a tip to those who shy away from the chipotles because of their heat. You can treat them exactly the way you do fresh jalapenos -- split them open and scrape out the seeds and membranes. Since you don't need a whole can, you can freeze them. Two options: either put them in a freezer bag, lay them flat in your freezer; then break off a chipotle or the sauce as you need it. OR, whir them up in your blender or mini-processor and then freeze, laying flat until frozen. Remove the seeds first if you don't like the heat. One can will last months that way!
