This is a special sauce that goes great with burgers, over whole grains or vegetables.

2 chipotle peppers packed in adobo sauce, rinsed

      Hi Maya, I think you are asking about the Chipotle Peppers packed in Adobo Sauce? We have not been able to find an organic version of this but there are a few conventional brands, like San Marcos Chipotle Peppers packed in Adobo Sauce. It contains chipotle peppers, tomato puree, onions, vinegar, canola oil, sugar, salt, paprika, garlic. You can also get dried Chipotle Peppers and make your own “Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce” that you can use in our creamy sauce recipe for Chipotle Sauce. Another option is to substitute dried Chipotle Pepper Powder. Start with a 1/2 teaspoon and add more to taste.
