• Chipotles pepper in adobo sauce are intensely smoky and spicy, so they're usually minced up for recipes to distribute the heat. The sauce is also often used since it contains just as much flavor as the peppers themselves.


  • You can find canned Chipotle Peppers in Adobo sauce in the Latin isle of most grocery stores. Are they spicy? Yes, they are spicy, but not crazy-burn-your-face-off spicy. Or, use the sauce from the can instead, which has the same great flavor, but much less heat.

    Furthermore, is chipotle sauce the same as adobo? Chipotle chiles are dried, smoked jalapeños. Adobo is a tangy, slightly sweet red sauce. Put them together in a can and they become a versatile pantry staple. Use just the chipotles for intense smoky chile heat or just the sauce for a sour-sweet flavor and a slightly less fiery smoky heat.

    Likewise, what can I substitute for chipotle peppers in adobo sauce?

    Mix 1 tablespoon tomato paste (or if you must – ketchup), 1 tablespoon cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon chipotle powder (or smoked paprika/cayenne powder mix), 1/2 teaspoon cumin, a pinch of oregano, a pinch of garlic powder, and a pinch of salt. Adjust these proportions to best fit your flavor and spiciness expectations.

    Where is adobo sauce in grocery store?

    We typically find that chiles in adobo are hiding in the International aisle of the supermarket, along with other Latin ingredients. Less frequently, weve found them stocked with canned tomatoes. They usually come in short, 2-inch-tall (or so) cans, similar to the size of most tomato paste cans.
