What is Chipotle in Adobo?
Chipotle peppers are ripened, red, jalapeño peppers, that have been smoked and dried. Chipotle in adobo sauce is those peppers rehydrated and 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, depending on the individual pepper you pick out of the can. Chipotles can vary in their heat levels.
