Chipotle Sauce

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by PanNan

This delicious sauce is similar to the sauce made at Jalapeno's Restaurant in Houston. Serve with grilled seafood, or seafood tacos. It can also be served as a dip.

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.
