Recipe by Mrs Goodall
I really learned to appreciate Chipotles in adobo sauce during the ZWTII. I found this recipe in Bon Appetite Oct. 2006. It's a great take on your typical deviled eggs. Here's a "grate" trick I learned for grating the egg yolks...get a fine mesh sieve (not the very very finest, but a "regular" fine), put the yolks in the sieve and push through the sieve with a spatula. As the yolk pushes through, scrape the bottom of the sieve...continue until all the yolk is pushed through. Gently stir in rest of ingredients. It really made a difference! Enjoy!

These are good, but my guests were flush in the face from the heat. The second time I made them I scraped out the seeds which removed much of the heat and afforded the addition of the adobo sauce that the chipotles are packed in for even more smokey flavor.
