Using boullion cubes

wandajune6 | Aug 23, 2012 05:16 AM

I've never been a heavy user of boullion cubes but recently saw a few varieties that made me curious. I now have boxes of Knorr garlic, onion, and chipotle boullion cubes - and no idea how to use them. I know that they'll be pretty salty as well so I'm a bit worried about turning my recipes into salt licks!

My initial thought is to throw the onion and garlic into a crockpot when I'm making pot roast but have no idea on proportions. I'm also a bit clueless on how to use the chipotle variety. I usually use chipotles in adobo and don't know how to translate the cubes into the recipes I use with canned.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
