  1. I'd use some in your favorite chili. I always add a little chipotle to my chili as a secret ingredient.

    Though I usually use dried pepper crushed up, I have used a chipotle paste/sauce before that worked fine. I'm sure the boullion will serve the purpose too.

    1. I always use them in chili, beer chili spaghetti , flavored butter (good on corn on the cob) and for chipotle mayo when making panninis..

      1. I love boullions and Knorr makes so many different variations and i love them all.
        They are great in beans and I in fact have the same ones as you and throw one or two in with black eyed peas with pork butt or navy beans with ham hocks. I use them in soups, any mexian or cajun based stew or soup. I've not thought to use them for corn, good idea though!

        1. I recently spotted Knorr chipotle chile sauce and also Mole sauce in aseptic containers in the market. curious.

              I tried the chipotle sauce and it was really good, shocking as that may be. I've also just bought the pipian sauce, though I haven't tried that yet.

                I'm addicted to the mole sauce, I use it in everything. It also makes an excellent dipping sauce, I've even used it with oriental appetizers and it's a great match.

              2. Hay, caramba! Where did you guys find these? In the US? Where? Supermarkets?

                      hey Sam that 3.75 would`nt be bad if your making some chicken mole. I usually
                      can`t eat chicken but in a mole sauce would probably be the best tasteing for
                      me. I got burned out on chicken when I was a kid.

                      1. re: Sam Fujisaka

                        I picked it up for $3.25 from the local food monger. I amm willing to pay the price for the time I saved.

                    2. re: Sam Fujisaka

                      Believe it or not, I found it at Big Lots, and I don't think it was priced a dollar, It is wonderful sauce and great over chicken.
