Chipotles en Adobo

Chipotles en Adobo

Chipotles en Adobo is a smoky, sweet yet spicy puree that delivers an intense flavor of chipotle chillies.

It is made from the dried & smoked jalapeno pepper and is an amazing addition to any marinade, sauce, dip or dressing. A small teaspoon of this amazing mixture will totally transform any dish.

Guacamole

Guacamole

Guacamole these days is a well known component to the Friday /Saturday night tradition of chips & dips – you know, the usuals… tortilla or posh Kettle chips with cream cheese & chive, hummus, taramasalata (if you’re feeling adventurous), and of course Guacamole.

Proper homemade Guacamole, should be rich and creamy from really good quality, and really ripe Avocados

For me the initial texture should be followed up with a bit of a kick! This comes from finely chopped shallots or red onions, hot red chilli and I always add a bit of Garlic

Sriracha

Sriracha

This bright red, hot sauce is made from red chili peppers, garlic, vinegar, salt, and sugar. The sauce is hot and tangy with just a hint of sweetness, and I must admit, I am absolutely addicted to it!

Sriracha sauce is often served as a condiment in Thai, Vietnamese, and Chinese restaurants. And the plastic green lidded Rooster bottle it is sold and served in has become as iconic as the sauce itself.
