Measure out sugar, set aside. Measure out juice, set aside. Open pectin packet and set, upright, in cup.
3Remove Chipotle Chilies and set on cutting board. Pour all sauce into a small bowl and set aside. Take 2 or 3 chipotles and remove seeds and chop fine and add into the sauce.
4You need have all ingredients measured out and ready to go because the process is pretty fast.
