  • 2 cans (14.5 oz each) no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Instead of the spicy heat of chipotle chiles and adobo sauce, omit them and increase the chili powder to 2 teaspoons.
  • tip 2
    Chipotle chiles are dried smoked jalapeño chiles. They are available dry in bulk or canned in adobo, a spicy Mexican sauce made with chiles, herbs and vinegar. Chipotles and adobo add smoky and spicy flavor to recipes; look for chipotles canned in adobo sauce in the grocery store's Mexican-foods aisle.
