"Don't know where Melissa gets her chipotle peppers, but I had to reduce the quantity down to 2 TEASPOONS in order to not destroy every taste bud in my mouth!

I thought it also needed a dash or two of salt.
Other than that, this was lovely on baked potatoes, fresh bread, whole grain crackers, and pasta."
