To andreakoder, the recipe calls for 1-2 canned chipotle chilis with adobo sauce, not CANS. A friend of mine made the same mistake with corn soup. It took the tops of our heads off. The lesson we learned that night is that no recipe will call for a full can unless you are cooking a huge batch for like 40 people.
I portion the leftover chilis and adobo sauce in ice cube trays and freeze, then transfer to zip lock bag for future recipes.
