A smoky, tangy paste made with chipotle chillies and tomato.
Chipotle chillies give this paste heat and a smoky flavour: it’s a store cupboard staple.
UK – We use chillies imported from Mexico to produce our sauces here in the UK.
Stir into soups, stews and sauces to add instant depth (start with 1 tsp); mix with oil and garlic to make a marinade for meat, fish or vegetables like corn on the cob; mix with mayonnaise, ketchup or fresh salsa to add some extra zing to your sauces.
1 tbsp paste = 1 whole chipotle in adobo
