- When you are mixing the ingredients in a food processor is the perfect time to add more chipotle to your liking.
- If you really don't like things very spicy, add only the adobo sauce, and leave out the chipotle peppers.
- That's also a great time to add more vegetable broth if you want a thinner consistency.
