It’s easy to make your own Chipotles in Adobo Sauce using either store-bought or homemade Chipotle Peppers.
So now that I’ve pickled, smoked, dried and jellied this summer’s bounty of chili peppers, it’s time to make one of my absolute favorite condiments, Chipotles in Adobo sauce. I always have a store-bought can of Chipotles in Adobo sauce in the pantry since it’s one of my go-to ingredients for making tacos, chili, soups, dips, you name it.
Why Not Make My Own Chipotles in Adobo?
Since I just smoked and dried a bagful of jalapeno peppers to make my own Chipotle Peppers, I figured it would be fun to make my own Chipotles in Adobo. I found a few recipes on-line and and took the elements I liked from those recipes to create my own version of adobo sauce.
The recipe is actually super easy to make. Of course, you can certainly use store bought chipotle peppers instead of the homemade.
I made a batch of Chipotles in Adobo about 3 weeks ago and have kept the jar in the refrigerator. The flavor of the peppers has just gotten better over the last few weeks and I’m really happy with the flavor of the sauce. To be honest, I kind of winged it with the sauce recipe, but it’s a keeper!
