What do you do with unused chipotle peppers in adobo sauce?

It never fails that I need only one or two out of a can.

If you want to save for future use, you can also puree them and freeze in small amounts (e.g., in an ice cube tray - when frozen, release and put 'cubes' in a ziploc freezer bag.)

Yes! Add them to mayo and use the mix for tuna melts. They make the best flavoring for cream cheese that you can eat spread on crackers or on flour tortillas for wraps

I transfer them to a glass jar and freeze, so I can still extract them whole if I want. (Don't leave them in the can -- you can take off the label and put it on the jar.)

I stir them into beans like pintos or black beans. They also make a nice addition to guacamole.

You can also puree them and work them into the sauce mornay for your macaroni and cheese.

I love them in deviled eggs. Also, if you decide not to use them right away, they last forever in the fridge. Well, maybe not forever, but several months.
