Herdez chipotle peppers in adobo 215g
Chipotles are ripe, red jalapeño peppers that have been dried and smoked. It is believed that this process was created by civilizations living in the Mexico valley before the Aztecs. They dried and smoked peppers in order to store them for long periods of time. This process is still used today to preserve peppers, but now some chipotles are canned in an red adobo sauce made with seasoned tomato broth.
The smoking process and the adobo sauce give these adobado chipotles a very unique and delicious flavor. Just one or two chipotles give sauces, salsas, stews and anything in what they are used a lot of flavor with just the right amount of heat.
