it says to use ONE canned chipotle chili in adobo sauce, minced, not one can of chilis, minced... therefore, you ended up with spicier soup.... I'd probably need the whole can, if not more, to make it spicy enough...

Be SUPER careful with the chipotle chili! I used about a 4 oz can, and failed to taste test before I added. I spent the next day adding beans, sweet onions and shredded carrots to take the heat out! Delicious recipe, just taste that chili before you add!
