Chipotles in adobo are smoked and dried jalapeños rehydrated and canned in a sweet and tangy purée of tomato, vinegar, garlic, and some other spices, for a ruddy sauce that packs wicked heat but with plenty of balance and body. The chipotle chilies come in a convenient can for long term storage and are accompanied with a delicious smoky red adobo sauce. Chipotle chilies in Adobo sauce date back in history to a region that is now northern Mexico City, prior to the Aztec civilization. It is conjectured that the Aztecs smoked jalapeno chilies because the thick, fleshy, chili was difficult to dry and prone to rot. The Aztecs used the same “smoke drying” process for the chilies as they used for drying meats. This smoking allowed the chilies to be stored for a substantial period of time. Nowadays delicious plump jalapenos are picked for their taste and then slowly smoked to infuse them with that heady smoky chipotle flavour. Finally the chilies chipotles are canned in a zesty red adobo sauce. Why not add a few chilies from a can of chipotle chilies in adobo sauce to your Lasagna meat sauce to a warm spicy flavour. Chipotle chilies can also be added to cream cheese to make a delicious appetizer dip for a Mexican fiesta or party.
