    We really liked this dip. It introduced some previously skeptical family members to chipotle. To a previous rater ... you only use one pepper, not the whole can. You can freeze the remaining peppers on parchment on a pizza sheet for other uses.

    I made this on the weekend. One person really liked it. What I didn't like was the directions. I guessed, and purchased the small can of peppers. It did not say to drain them so I put the sauce in. Way to runny!!!! I also added about another half tub of cream cheese as it was very thin in the pie plate. It was also difficult to find a can of the peppers in adobo sauce.

    This dip had a very smoky chipotle flavor, I thought it would be sweeter.
