Do you chipotle? Do you LOVE the smoky rich flavor of smoked jalapeno peppers? Hate the painstaking preparation though? Now you can have the equivalent of several cans of chipotle peppers in a paste form that is ready to add to spreads, dips, sauces and even drinks.
The ingredients are chipotle paste, tomato paste, water, vinegar, salt and citric acid. The 6.5 ounce jar is filled with a rich, aromatic and highly flavorful concentrated paste of pure chipotle flavor and heat.
Yes, heat! This paste has a decided kick to it and the red chili face on the jar says “Hot Stuff”. So, if you are a faint of heart gringo you will need to use just a 1/4 teaspoon of this paste to give your recipes that authentic chipotle flavor without singing your delicate taste buds.
But, if you are a heat freak, then bring on this chipotle paste with adobo! Carumba, but your taste buds will kick and smoke and your sombrero will smolder, but you will go with a smile on your face!
Here is a recipe using this paste that every gringo or heat freak will enjoy: just adjust the heat to your own tolerance!
MARY QUITE CONTRARY
Alcohol of your choice: vodka, tequila or beer; V8 or vegetable juice; Gourmet Chipotle Paste
Mix your regular proporations of juice and alcohol, then add and stir in 1/2 teaspoon of Gourmet Chipotle Paste. Add more heat and flavor with more paste and compliment with your preferred seasoning salts, Worcestershire and garnish. Enjoy the most distinctive Bloody Mary you’ve ever had!
Considering that we can’t “take the heat”, this jar will last us a long time, but every little addition of this paste will make our recipes taste authentic, rich and chipotle smoky.
