Chipotle Chili in Adobo

chipotle in adoboChipotle is a jalapeno all grown-up, ripened, smoked, and slightly shriveled. You can buy them dried, but I prefer the canned chipotle in a spiced tomato sauce called adobo.

It’s the secret to my spicy lime mayo that I serve with my chipotle orange shrimp and a delight for anyone who appreciates the heat, depth, and tang that chilies bring to the meal.

Ways to Enjoy Chipotle
