Sure—you can buy canned chipotles in adobo, slice/chop/puree them & use them in recipes. That’s delicious, but it can be time consuming & messy.
Here enters my friend ground dried chipotle powder.
|I go through 1.5-2 bottles of this a year...|
I love dried ground chipotle powder…it’s probably one of my favorite ingredients in my spice cabinet. It is a quick, easy way to add smoky undertones & flavorful heat to a dish. Sprinkle a little on flank steak or skirt steak with some garlic, salt & pepper when grilling out. Add it to chicken seasonings & rub it onto chicken before you grill it. Use it as the base of a great dry rub for ribs (recipe coming soon)…
Chipotle mayo? Don’t waste money buying it in a jar. Make it yourself. Try dipping sweet potato fries into it, or using it on beef & cheddar melts.
2 Tablespoons of your choice of Mayo + ¼ teaspoon of chipotle powder = a good basic chipotle mayo.Not spicy enough for you?—add more chipotle powder.
Are you a mayo hater? (craziness but understandable), substitute sour cream or Greek yogurt.
Add a little chipotle powder to your favorite mayo, yogurt or sour cream based dip…yada yada yada…the possibilities are endless.
