As I was pickin' out a can of japs to put in it this caught my eye:

I thought that might make a great addition, so a grabbed it and headed home. Now ya gotta understand my wife. She dearly love this soup as is. She's pretty picky about it, ya just don't go messin with a classic. So I made it my usual way:

Then I ladled out some of it into a separate pot, and added a chopped chipotle. :woohoo:

Oh MAN! Good stuff. Mrs. Shoots even liked it. I'm gonna experiment with adding more to the leftovers.

Great looking soup. Be careful with them chipotle peppers. A little goes a long way. You add too much and the chipotle is all you will taste.

Chipotles are awesome I use them all the time. Basically they are just a roasted Jalapeno pepper.
Your soup looks like the Bomb!!!!:drooling:

Verm, yeah, hot little devils.


Shiz, I've been in the specialty food business since the early eighties. I was stocking canned chipotles for years without really knowing what they were. I just thought it was some variety of hot pepper. The pic on the label was disgusting. It wasn't until they really had widespread popularity that I learned that they were smoked jalapenos. I no longer find it disgusting!

Really they are smoked when they dry them and they will take over the flavor of whatever you season with them if you are not careful.
