Perfect topping for our fish tacos! Heat is spot on. I used 1 dried chili pepper. I freeze my chipotle peppers individually with some adobe sauce in plastic wrap lined dixie cups-it works great. Besides using this for tacos and dip for tortilla chips...I think you could marinate chicken breasts and possibly some sort of a salad that calls for mayonnaise. Thank you PanNan for a wonderful lunch. Made for Photo Swap #8.

Excellent sauce. I used it as a dip for grilled shrimp. Not too hot but a good spicy flavor. Thanks PanNan.
