Chipotles in Adobo Sauce are a staple ingredient in Mexican cuisine. Chipotles, which are smoked and dried jalapeños, are paired with a thick intensely flavored Adobo sauce. The sauce features flavorful aromatic ingredients such as dried chiles, garlic, cinnamon and Mexican oregano.
The spicy peppers are used to enhance classic dishes such as slow cooked Barbacoa Beef, and Red Enchilada Sauce. It can also be used or to give a little extra spice and flavor to dishes such as this Spicy Hummus with Chipotle in Adobo recipe or to make a tangy smoky spicy Barbecue Sauce. These homemade chipotles in adobo can also add an extra kick to spicy Bloody Marys!
While they can be purchased in small cans sold in grocery stores international foods aisles, they are so much better when made from scratch. You can freeze any leftover chipotles for using later. We recommend freezing in an ice tray so you can easily access a perfect portion.
