"I like the recipe, but I would like to know: What is Chipotle pepper? Can someone tell me? It is not available in Australia, so I left it out and added a little extra cayenne.."

"I can't handle the spicy dishes either--hot or not--my stomach dislikes them. And I'm not diabetic either. So I just leave out that 'stuff' & maybe add water chestnuts or something else, or maybe nothing else. It is getting harder & harder to find "good ole American" food anymore in restaurants. Most seniors (& I didn't say all) cannot deal with this spicy stuff. Alice"

"Diabetics are often older?!? Type 2 diabetes is not the only diabetes in this world. There is also Type 1 diabetes which usually occurs when you are younger!

If you don't like the spicy dishes omit the peppers."
