A chipotle pepper is a red Jalapeño chile, ripened, dried, and smoked through a special process. Derived from the Aztec word meaning smoke, jalapeños are placed over huge pits and smoke is blown through tunnels running underground. Chipotle Characteristics - A unique warm heat and smoky flavor , chipotles are packed in a red adobo sauce made from lightly seasoned tomato broth. Embasa chipotles are completely shielded from all the elements during processing to produce an exceptional product. Tan - brown, veined and ridged, they are 5-10 cm (2-4 inches) long and 2.5 cm (1 inch) in diameter. Medium-thick fleshed, with a subtle deep rounded heat, they are excellent in sauces, soups, and as a seasoning for meats and stews.

This is simply the most delicious and authentic Mexican sauce I have ever found. I will only shop at stores that have this product regularly on their shelves, otherwise I go somewhere else!

This is the perfect blend of Tomato sauce and Chipotle in Adobo sauce... I love the smokey, sweet spicy blend. One of the things i love to do is to mix equal parts of this salsa and Ketchup and use on my steak or as a dip for Tortilla Chips! I'm so glad i found this Salsa!!!!
The ease in mixing it into other sauces or soups/stews. I love the smokey, spicy, sweet flavor it imparts.
