Description

Chipotle in Adobo Sauce - La Costena - Also known as Chiles Chipotles in Mexico. the chipotle chillies come in a convenient can for long term storage and are accompanied with a delicious smoky red adobo sauce. Chipotle chiles in Adobo sauce date back in history to a region that is now northern Mexico City, prior to the Aztec civilization. It is conjectured that the Aztecs smoked jalapeno chilies because the thick, fleshy, chile was difficult to dry and prone to rot. The Aztecs used the same "smoke drying" process for the chilies as they used for drying meats. This smoking allowed the chilies to be stored for a substantial period of time. Nowadays delicious plump jalapenos are picked for their taste and then slowly smoked to infuse them with that heady smoky chipotle flavour. Finally the chiles chipotles are canned in a zesty red adobo sauce. 
 
Why not add a few chiles from a can of chipotle chillies in adobo sauce to your Lasagna meat sauce to a warm spicy flavour. Chipotle chiles can also be added to cream cheese to make a delicious appetizer dip for a Mexican fiesta or party.
