Adobo Sauce


  • 2 cups dried chipotle peppers, to soak in adobo sauce
  • Adobo Sauce:--
  • ½ cup chilli powder
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp SIDS SALT & PEPPER
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground allspice
  • 3 tbsp olive oil


  1. For Adobo Sauce:
    In a food processor or blender add the chilli powder and carefully pour in 1½ cups boiling water. Cover with lid to steep while you get the other ingredients together.
    SIDS RASPBERRY VINEGAR, chopped tomatoes, garlic, brown sugar, oregano, cumin, cinnamon, SIDS SALT & PEPPER and allspice to the food processor or blender and process to a smooth purée, about the consistency of BBQ sauce. If needed, thin with water.
    Heat oil in a skillet or Dutch oven over medium high heat. Carefully pour in the chilli vegetable purée and bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook for 20 minutes uncovered.
    Makes about 2½ to 3 cups adobo sauce. Use in any Mexican dish you prefer or add chipotle chillies and keep in an airtight container and refrigerate.
    For Dried Chipotle Peppers:
    Pre-soak: Bend and crack slightly the dried chipotle peppers (or make punctures all over with a knife). Add to a saucepan and just cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook for 30 minutes. Be sure to add water if needed so they don't dry and burn. Set aside to cool.
