Chipotle in adobo sauce is taking those peppers and rehydrating. Then they are soaked in a sauce of tomato, vinegar, garlic and spices.

It is available canned, in most specialty grocers in the US. The sauce is more smoky, than it is hot, depending on the individual pepper you pick out of the can.

Chipotles can vary widely, in their heat levels, because jalapenos range from medium heat to very hot.
