While the onion is sauteing, de-seed and then finely mince chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. I recommend wearing gloves when handling the peppers, especially if you wear contacts like I do.

Set them aside for now.

In a mixing bowl, combine fresh bread that is torn into small bits and milk.

Add ground beef, but pull it apart into little bits. This makes mixing the ingredients easier, and prevents overworking the meat mixture. Over working, leads to tough, dry meatloaves or meatballs, when making those.
