2. Take two chipotles in adobo sauce out of the can and remove the seeds (add more then two if you like more heat) Place them into the mixing bowl with the Crema Mexicana

3. Place two tablespoons of pecans in a coffee grinder and grind them to an almost past, add to the mixing bowl

4. Mix all together
5. Add just a splash of water if needed to smooth it out
