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.

Here are some ideas, from a post here on FOOD52 on just that topic: http://food52.com/blog... Apparently you are not alone! ;o)

Thanks! The chipotle cream sounds incredible.

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.)

Add some to mayonnaise to make a dip

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

What's the portion breakdown if using frozen chopotle cubes?

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.

I line a plate with foil, then space the peppers (plus a bit of the adobo sauce on each pepper). I put the plate in the freezer and allow the peppers to completely freeze. Once frozen, I remove the peppers from the plate and toss into a bag or tupperware, then put them back into the freezer. Whenever I make pinto beans, I add a frozen pepper to the lot. I also use a frozen pepper to make a spicy black bean dip.

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.

Just buy some Olo's Chipotle Paste in a tube and stop messing with the cans! http://spencersmarket.com...
