Ingredient Info
Chipotle chiles are dried, smoked jalapeño chiles. They are available dry in bulk, or canned in adobo sauce. Adobo sauce is a traditional Mexican paste made from ground chiles, herbs and vinegar. It's not overly hot, but it has a rich spicy flavor.
Make-Ahead Tip
The sauce can be made one day ahead. Refrigerate it until you are ready to bake the drummettes.
