Ridiculous pronunciations

It was on the label on the glass panel "Chitpotel Southwest" at Subway.

"So what do you want?"
"I want yellow mustard, sweet ranch, vinegar and..." I frowned and looked at the label. "And...what what what whatever that is southwest."
"Pardon me?"
"What what what southwest," I repeated and smiled at the person. 
He turned to the side and laughed. "Ok, so here's your sub with what what what southwest. New recipe! Yay!"

Talk about embarrassing moments! I am starting to think my kindergarten teacher somehow let me escaped during the test for reading, writing and counting because I obviously can't pronounce many words accurately! Tell me how you pronounce the word of that sauce above? Is it cheet-poh-tell or kai-po-tel or cheet-pott-eil or kai-et-po-eal?  I just don't have that "common sense" for pronunciations, even for the common words we've all been using for years. *bangs head to the wall*
