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.

I highly recommend making a large batch of this, as first of all it will keep for a good couple of months in the fridge and secondly, you will become totally addicted to it and will be craving more if you don’t!
