A very popular sauce, used often in Mexican and Southwestern recipes, chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are stewed chipotle chiles. The sauce provides a smokey flavor with a mild heat to a variety of dishes. This homemade version of adobo sauce is easy to make and far more superior than ready made ones.
Preparation time: 5 minutes, Cooking time: 90 minutes, Serves: 12 


7 to 10 medium-sized dried chipotle chiles, stemmed and cut lengthwise
1/3 cup onion, sliced
5 Tbsp white or cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups water


Add all of the ingredients in a bowl over medium heat. Bring to a bowl, reduce heat to minimum and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until the chiles are soft and the liquid has been reduced to about a cup. Pour ingredients in a blender and process until you get a smooth puree. Pass through a sieve into a glass jar to get rid of the seeds. Cool and refrigerate for one month or more.

This recipe is great... I keep the adobo sauce in the refrigerator and use it when I need to add some heat and flavor to Mexican dishes. It lasts for months. Thanks!
