LA COSTENA CHIPOTLES IN ADOBO SAUCE 200g
 
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 chillies in Adobo sauce date back in history to a region that is now northern Mexico City, prior to the Aztec civilisation. It is conjectured that the Aztecs smoked jalapeño chillies because the thick, fleshy, chili was difficult to dry and prone to rot.
 
The Aztecs used the same "smoke drying" process for the chillies as they used for drying meats. This smoking allowed the chillies to be stored for a substantial period of time. Nowadays delicious plump jalapeños 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 of these chillies to your lasagne meat sauce to add a warm spicy flavour. Chipotle chillies can also be added to cream cheese to make a delicious appetiser dip for a Mexican fiesta or party.
