A chipotle pepper and a touch of cumin add spice and distinct flavour to this brisket. Chipotles in adobo sauce are a trendy kitchen staple, which you'll find with the canned chiles at your grocery store. However, one chopped jalapeño pepper and 1 tbsp (15 mL) ketchup make a delicious substitute. Vary the root vegetables depending on your family's preferences.
