Use La Costena chipotle peppers in adobo sauce to add big smoky warmth to Mexican dishes. Plump jalapeños are slowly smoked to mellow out their heat and give them smoky depth.
Here, they are canned in adobo sauce – a tomato sauce with vinegar and spices – making the chipotles a versatile ingredient.
Try roughly chopping the chipotles and adding to a Mexican meat stew, use a whole chipotle to top a Mexican-inspired burger, or even add a smoky twist to a homemade tomato ketchup.
