Tip
Chipotle chiles are dried smoked jalapeƱo chiles. Canned chipotles are packed in adobo sauce, a thick and spicy mixture of ground chilies, herbs and vinegar.
Tip
Refrigerate the remaining chipotle chiles to add zip to chili, stew, beans or eggs. For extended storage, spoon chiles into a quart-sized resealable freezer plastic bag.
