Substitute for Chipotles in Adobo Sauce
Here we are in Abu Dhabi and I am not sure I will be able to locate the necessary ingredients for a Guy Fieri favorite. So what to do? Make your own! I located this great recipe and I am going to give it a go.
About Chipotles in adobo sauce
Chipotle in adobo chiles (smoked jalapeno chiles) are canned in a red sauce that typically contains tomato puree and a variety of seasonings such as paprika, salt, onions, vinegar, garlic and oregano. Used for making sauces, chipotle mayonaise, rubs as well as other recipes.
The smaller morita chile us used for making the chiles in adobo sauce rather than the large meco chile. Find chipotles in adobo in some well stocked grocery stores or most Mexican markets. The flavor and quality can really vary. Make your own (see recipes) or rehydrated chipotles OR rehydrated pasilla de Oaxaca chiles
