Convenient, inexpensive, good for you and delicious; peanut butter is an all American favorite – only Canada and the Netherlands consume more peanut butter per capita than the U.S. About 80% of peanut butter sold in the U.S. is smooth, with men favoring crunchy, and women loving smooth.
No. 3 : Clever Idea
Chipotles in adobo are smoked and dried jalapeños rehydrated and canned in a sweet and tangy purée of tomato, vinegar, garlic, and other spices. Remove the remaining peppers and sauce to a bag and store in the freezer – they freeze great!
