Want to learn how to make Chipotles in Adobo Sauce in your kitchen? You can do it using either store-bought or homemade Chipotle Peppers.
So now that I’ve pickled, smoked, dried and jellied this summer’s bounty of chili peppers, it’s time to make one of my absolute favorite condiments, Chipotles in Adobo sauce.
I always have a store-bought can of Chipotles in Adobo sauce in the pantry since it’s one of my go-to ingredients for making tacos, chili, soups, dips, you name it.
Why not make homemade Chipotles in Adobo?
Since I just smoked and dried a bagful of jalapeno peppers to make my own Chipotle Peppers, I figured it would be fun to make my own Chipotles in Adobo. I found a few adobo sauce recipes on-line and and took the elements I liked to create my own version.
Sure, chipotle in adobo are easy enough to buy and are pretty cheap. But we make lots of stuff at home just for the fun of it. Also, if you have a garden or farm share and have a bounty of peppers, this is a great way to preserve them.
The recipe is actually super easy to make. Of course, you can certainly use store bought chipotle peppers instead of the homemade.
I would say the most time consuming part is rehydrating the peppers. The rest of the sauce comes together very quickly.

I made a batch of Chipotles in Adobo about 3 weeks ago and put it into a canning jar that I keep in the refrigerator. The flavor of the peppers has just gotten better over the last few weeks and I’m really happy with the flavor of the sauce. To be honest, I kind of winged it with the sauce recipe, but it’s a keeper!
